Marinette Rec Center To Open January 25

Issue Date: January 9, 2019

At the Marinette Parks and Recreation Committee Meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 8, Gavin Scray, Executive Recreation Director, announced good news. The long awaited new Rec Center opening will become a reality on Friday, Jan. 25 starting with a grand opening at 4 p.m., followed by a Hockey Tournament at 6 p.m. The doors will then be open to the public in full force on Monday, Jan. 28.

There are several events already planned for the new center, including Rumble At the Rec with money to help fund the event approved by the Room Tax Committee and details will be released this week for the event.

There is an upcoming All State Girls Hockey Tournament that will bring in out of town guests. April 6 and 7, Marinette Youth Baseball Inc. (MYBI) tryouts will be held at the center and also on April 6, there will be an entertainment type fundraiser with details to be announced soon.

The months of May and June will be busy for planning of events at the Rec Center for the fishing tournament weekend.

Scray also gave an update on the finishing touches of the center, stating the Area A Ice Arena ice has been made and painted. Sponsor logos and rink lines have been installed and the final coats of ice will be finished this week.

Area B Community Arena progress includes saw cuts and construction joints being filled and caulked this week. Primer and acrylic coating process in Area B will begin the week of Jan. 14. "This is the most notable area with work left to be done", Scray said.

In area C Turf Arena, walking track stripes will be painted the week of Jan. 14. The Ancillary/Meeting rooms are all complete and awaiting installation of smart-boards, projectors or TV's. Also complete are the locker rooms and restrooms with just a few tweaks left to be done in the Varsity locker room.

Network cutover took place on Wednesday, Jan. 9. At that point, all access points are live for public Wifi access. New static IP's have been assigned to all contractors. The lighting programming is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 10 and the phone system is up and operational.

Other miscellaneous finishing work includes final touches on signage to be done the week of Jan. 14. Event tables, chairs, stages and equipment, along with maintenance and custodial supplies are arriving on site. Program supplies and sports equipment is already on site and HVAC balancing is in process.

Alderperson, Brian Walters questioned Scray, "Will there be stuff for Curling this year in the ice arena?" Scray responded, "It is not feasible at this time, but we could work on it for the future. Curling ice is pebbly and Hockey ice is smooth. We can try to figure something out for next year."

In his Recreation Department Directors report, Kent Kostelecky outlined upcoming special events that will be held at the new Rec Center including Fly Fishing for Trout beginning on Tuesday, Feb. 19. Classes will be held in meeting room 121 in the new center. The final class practicing live casting will be done in the Activity Hall on Tuesday, March 12.

An American Girl Tea Party will be held Sat., Feb. 2. Girls can share in the American Girl doll experience by making mini sized arts and crafts for your doll and have a tea party. Those attending can bring an American Girl doll, a favorite doll or stuffed animal. Girls of ages four through 13 are welcome to attend.

Toddler time begins Thursday, Jan. 31 in the Turf Center. Adults are encouraged to attend with their children. Each week, different toys will be set out on the Turf for your toddlers to play with. Adults can either play with their toddler or walk around the track. Guardians must stay during the whole time. The cost is $1 per each child and adult and the adult or guardian must stay during the whole time.

The Welcome Center began planning for the 8th annual Logging and Heritage Festival being held on July 12 -14. Contracts are already secured for fireworks, music entertainment, kid's entertainment and the lumberjack show. The next meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 29. Travel Wisconsin's Big Bundle Up campaign concluded last week with 347 items collected. All items will be donated to the Salvation Army. The Center received 1,203 visitors in December for a grand total of 21,990 visitors in 2018 with 341 from Foreign countries.

The Senior Center welcomed back Erin Sauve after her maternity leave. This month Chair Yoga/ Pilates, Beginner Yoga and Zumba will start a new session. A blood pressure clinic will be held Tuesday, Jan. 15 from noon to 1 p.m. A massage clinic is planned for Jan. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Also welcomed back at the Senior Center were incumbent board members, Barbara Kent and Jeanne Limberg along with welcoming the newest member, Jane Luthardt. The center also extended gratitude to Richard Olsen who retired after many years of service as a distinguished member of the Board of Directors.

With the absence of Mayor Steve Genisot at the December Parks and Rec meeting, the committee revisited the option of having a campground host at City Park and reviewed their thoughts and ideas with Mayor Genisot. He thought it was a good idea to have someone there acting as Campground Host. Genisot said, "With having someone there, it would help coordinate firewood and gives ownership and better security".

Alderperson Ken Keller asked, "How many people use this campground to make it worthwhile for a host to be there"?

City Clerk, Lana Bero interjected by saying, "We didn't take reservations this past summer but had a lot of people wanting to make reservations. Campers decided to go elsewhere or stay at a hotel with not wanting to pull their camper here and taking the chance of not getting a campsite without the ability of making reservations. We will see a lot more campers there with the ability now of taking reservations".

Mayor Genisot said, "A decision should be made if this a summer-time position, one month? short term or what? We also need to define if we will have rustic sites and what the rates should be for electric and non- electric sites". Superintendent of Public Works Patrick Carlson, reinforced the fact that campsites are overgrown and modifications along with gravel needed.

Action items carried over to the February agenda is continuation of discussion about a Campground Host as well as Rec Center updates and the Parks and Recreation Plan.
