NEW SAN BRUNO RECREATION AND AQUATICS CENTER
In February 2017, following the completion of the Community Facilities Vision Plan, the San Bruno City Council voted to move forward with the construction of a new recreation center and all-season swimming pool facility in San Bruno City Park and requested that the Foundation provide a grant of $50 million to fund the planning, design, and construction of the facility. In March 2017, the Foundation Board approved a resolution supporting the concept of a $50 million strategic grant to the City for the design and construction of the new facility and directing the Executive Director to proceed with negotiating such a grant arrangement with the City.
The Foundation funded the first stage of the project (conceptual design development) with a grant in an amount not to exceed $550,000. In the spring of 2018, the City, with the assistance of Group 4 Architecture, Research + Planning, Inc., hosted a variety of opportunities for San Bruno community members to give input on the vision for the new recreation and aquatics center (see notice to the right).
The City completed the first design stage, with the City Council approving the conceptual design for the new facility on June 26.
