The Cosumnes CSD Board selected Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture in April 2021 to design the Morse Recreation Center. The center is located in Morse Community Park. The center will meet community demands for more fitness-related facilities in the East Franklin surrounding neighborhood.

A two-part community design workshop will be hosted at Franklin High School. The event will be held in the STEAM Academy room on Sept 21 at 6:30 PM. Generally, the workshop will cover a brief overview of the building’s initial design plans. Afterward, the plans will be presented to the community for feedback. Also, the second workshop on Nov 4 at 6:30 PM will finalize previous design recommendations. Then it will also address what the approval and construction process will be like. Workshops will be contingent upon COVID-19 restrictions, and the latest updates will be made available at www.yourcsd.com. 

The goal for these workshops is to check in with the community to get feedback on the preliminary design. We conducted community outreach two years ago and did some polling and found that priorities for programming were in fitness and gym space.

Paul Mewton, Chief of Planning, Design & Construction for Cosumnes CSD

The Design

The initial design plan features a 50,000 square foot bi-level complex. Note that the center will house an indoor track, two basketball gyms, and rooms for fitness and dance programs. In addition, the building will also feature a multipurpose room that can be utilized for event space and an expansive indoor fitness facility that will extend to an outdoor area to ensure that a variety of exercise needs are met. Indeed, the concept is to build a self-sufficient fitness center that generates its funds through paid memberships and day passes offered to the community. These funds will be utilized to keep the facility running. 

“Cosumnes CSD hopes that this new recreation center will promote new community connections by offering unique health and wellness opportunities for Elk Grove residents both local and beyond, “ Mewton said.

The design process is expected to take approximately 16 months, and an additional 17 months for construction, with a projected opening date of early 2024. Elk Grove Tribune has written about this topic previously in regards to construction plans.
