Fort Bend County Requests Community Input on New Multisport Recreation Center

May 13 2024

Fort Bend County Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with The Sports Facilities Companies (SFC), has initiated a comprehensive engagement process to assess the need for a new Multisport Recreation Center in Fort Bend County.

The potential center is expected to boost the availability of sporting amenities, including basketball, volleyball, and pickleball courts, indoor turf, batting cages, and fitness centers. It would also offer community spaces such as meeting rooms and other facilities.

To ensure that the new Multisport Recreation Center aligns with community needs, Fort Bend County Parks will be hosting a Community Engagement input meeting on Wednesday, May 22, from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at 727 Plantation Drive in Richmond. The aim of the meeting is to provide residents the opportunity to learn about the project and voice their interests in sports and recreational programs within the county.

In an additional effort to capture as much resident feedback as possible, an online survey has been launched. The survey covers a range of topics, including the perceived necessity of such a center, potential usage patterns, preferred facilities, and opinions regarding fee structures. The responses collected will significantly impact the decision-making and planning processes for the potential center. To take the online survey, click here.

Fort Bend County emphasizes its commitment to making informed decisions which accommodate the needs and desires of its residents. As such, residents are encouraged to attend the meeting and participate in the online survey. The survey, expected to take approximately five minutes to complete, is anonymous.

By facilitating public input in the planning process, Fort Bend County aims to create a facility that meets the changing needs of its diverse community, while enhancing the county's recreational landscape.
