Community Considers Rec Center Build

Plans for a recreation center that would serve all the residents of Big Horn are still in a stage of exploration.

School District 1 Recreation District Chairman Zack Cummins talked about the proposal after a board meeting earlier this week with a representative of Pascal Public Relations of Sheridan.

Members of the recreation district board received a proposal from the public relation firm's Kelly Pascal Gould. They will consider at their January meeting whether to hire Pascal at a proposed $95 an hour to help conduct research on whether Big Horn residents want a recreation center and, if so, to help develop a plan for such a facility. The recreation district is proposing to build the center on a portion of an L-shaped 15-acre tract of land adjacent to the Big Horn School complex.

The state of Wyoming bought the land earlier this year from Jackson Creek Partners for Sheridan County School District 1. Purchase price was just over $294,000, and the additional tract brought the size of the Big Horn campus to just over 31 acres, which is nearly double its original size.
