Public Meeting: Share Your Input
Regarding the Proposed
NW 50th Street Athletic Complex
In November 2014, Sunrise voters overwhelmingly approved up to $65 million in general obligation (GO) bonds to fund improvements to parks and recreation facilities citywide. Since that time, the City has hosted a series of meetings to solicit residents’ input regarding proposed Leisure Services projects.
Next up: A discussion of the athletic complex proposed for NW 50th Street
, just west of Pine Island Road and adjacent to Westpine Middle School. Join City staff on Tuesday, August 18, at 6:00 p.m.
at the meeting room at Nob Hill Soccer Club (10200 Sunset Strip, Sunrise 33322).
The conversation will be focused and site-specific. Staff will present ideas for possible improvements at this site, and will seek feedback from community members. Light refreshments will be served. For more information about the GO bond meeting, please call (954) 747-4600.
