New-CC-Rendering

Merriam City Council yesterday approved the overall design for the new community center with indoor and outdoor aquatics. A 200-stall parking structure will also be built onsite.


“We are excited to move forward with the design and construction of the Merriam Community Center,” said Merriam Mayor Ken Sissom. “We are building the future of recreation in our City and know it will be a community space that our residents will be proud of for years to come.”


With the Council’s approval, demolition and grading of the construction site will begin next month. Construction will start in 2019, and the community center is expected to open in summer 2020.


At the Sept. 24 meeting, City Council also approved:

  • Site rezoning and preliminary development plans for the community center site.
  • An ordinance adopting a new TIF Project Plan; to spend $6.6 million in TIF funds to build a 200-stall parking structure and associated site work.
  • The first bid package from design-builder McCarthy Building Companies. Find more information in the Sept. 24 City Council packet.
