The purpose of the Indoor Recreation Center Steering Committee is to investigate and propose to the Brookings City Council a financially viable center that meets the needs of our citizens, improves Brookings quality of life, and generates additional visitors to the Brookings community. 

Specific Objectives:

  • Evaluate the needs of the Brookings community and determine what amenities are needed not only now, but into the future. 
  • Determine the potential construction cost associated with a facility and determine possible funding sources.
  • Evaluate the potential costs associated with running the proposed facility and investigate what similar communities have done to ensure community engagement. 
  • Identify site and location requirements and possible sites meeting these requirements.
  • Investigate and quantify the potential economic impact, specifically in tourism dollars, of a facility like this.

 The Committee will consist of nine members total:

  • One member of City Council (Chair)
  • One member of the Brookings School System
  • One member of the Parks and Recreation Board
  • One member of the Brookings Health System Board of Trustees 
  • One member of Brookings Convention and Visitors Bureau Staff and
  • Four citizens at-large, preferably with a background in club sports or health and recreation, a parent of a preschooler or an active senior citizen.
