The W. Randy Smith Recreation Center’s phase III addition is currently underway. The projected total cost for this project is $1.7 million-dollars. The expansion will more than double the recreation center’s size with the 19,000 square foot addition, which includes an identical double gym, meeting rooms, storage and corridor space. The expected completion date on the new phase is set for July 2019.
The EWVCF has funded $1.2 million dollars, again through the W. Randy Smith Fund. The Berkeley County Board of Education has allocated $500,000 to assist the project, which will be repaid by the park board. The Berkeley County Board of Education utilizes the facility year-round, through Musselman High School physical education classes, athletic sports practices and events. The facility is also used by area middle schools and recreation board-sponsored activities. $100,000 will be needed for furnishings for the gym which includes bleachers, scoreboards, divider curtain, volleyball equipment, indoor soccer equipment, and wall padding. Also, another $100,000 will be required for the completion of the 3,000 square foot meeting rooms. To raise these funds, we are seeking businesses and organizations to sponsor signage. The sponsored signs are permanent advertising as they will hang in the gym in perpetuity.
Adding this additional space will increase tremendously our ability to provide quality leisure opportunities, recreational programs and activities. This will greatly benefit not only the residents on the south end of our county but all Berkeley County residents as well.
