Heimsath Architects conducted a Public Visioning Session to generate ideas for expanding the existing Recreation Center. The Session was open to all residents of the Wells Branch Municipal Utility District as part of a broad public input process.

Board Chair, Donna Howe called the meeting to order by welcoming the residents and introducing the Heimsath Architects team of Ben Heimsath, Eric MacInerney and Li Tong.

Residents had been asked to participate in a survey to register their support for different programs, or to suggest new idea for improvements. Ben presented a preliminary summary of the survey results indicating broad support for a range of expansion options.

The architects then facilitated a "walk and talk" exercise where the attendees broke into smaller groups to tour the existing facility. Attendees reconvened after their tours and listened summaries of the conversations and observations from each group.

The input from the Public Visioning Session will be utilized to develop specific program recommendations for the Board to consider for approval.
