The City of Mustang is looking for an architecture firm to oversee the expansion of Town Center.

In August, voters approved by 55 percent extending the city’s one-cent sales tax to 2030 for $25 million in various projects including adding on to the city’s 67,000 square foot facility.

Slated for the addition is a recreation center to include two gymnasiums, upper perimeter walking track, and cardio area and aerobic room expansion.

Then new parking and a metal canopy for the front entry into the senior center also is planned.

Assistant City Manager Justin Battles said Town Center currently only has one full-size gym that can be divided into two half-sized ones. Then above it is a walking trail that will be connected to the new one once it is built to give walkers added distance. As for the canopy for the senior center, he said this will be for the northeast entrance into Town Center.

Architecture firms are being asked to submit their qualifications to the city by Nov. 17.

From there, Battles, who is overseeing the project, said a date will be set for the review and interviews of candidates.

He was unsure exactly when that will take place but guessed it would be sometime in December.

    It would be really awesome if they added an indoor pool. The doctor said my husband should do swimming for wxercise because of some injuries he sustained while in the military but there are no indoor pools near by. Since you are already expanding this would be a great time to incorporate this feature. It could offer year round water aerobics, swimming lessons, swim parties for those who weren’t fortunate enough to be born during the summer months, and open swim times. Virtually everyone in the community could benefit from this.
