Rehab On Temecula Community Recreation Center is getting closer


TEMECULA, CA – Construction bids for the rehabilitation of the Temecula Community Recreation Center will soon be accepted by the city.

On Tuesday evening, the Temecula City Council authorized the Department of Public Works to solicit construction bids for Phase 1 of the renovation project at 30875 Rancho Vista Road, which includes full repair, maintenance and updating to current standards. Future second and third phases will include expansion and improvements throughout the facility, according to city documents.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Phase 1 construction project had not yet been listed on the city’s bids.

The Community Recreation Center is part of the 128-acre Ronald Reagan Sports Park. The complex houses classrooms and meeting rooms, a gymnasium, a multipurpose room with stage and kitchen, an outdoor amphitheater, a teen area and a swimming pool.

According to city documents, the overall rehabilitation of the center includes the reconfiguration of the center for adolescents; conversion of offices to accommodate a dedicated police station; renovation of safety devices, floor, roof and access to toilets; ADA compliance; renovation and expansion of existing offices and games rooms; increased storage space and improved kitchen equipment.

About half of the $10.7 million project cost will be funded by developer fees, while the rest will be covered by Measure S funding, according to city documents. In 2016, Temecula voters approved the ballot measure that mandated a 1% sales tax hike to fund general city services.

Among other things, the community recreation center is designed to be “a safe and engaging place for adolescents to participate in individual and group social, recreational, physical, and educational activities,” according to city documents.

The Community Recreation Center remains open. Get more information about installation here.
