Since acquiring four recreation centers from the Mission Viejo Co. last year for about $3.1 million, city staff has been trying to figure out exactly how to run the facilities.
On June 16, residents will have a chance to give their opinions on how the centers should be operated. A 6:30 p.m. public meeting on the centers will be held at City Hall, 26522 La Alameda.
The recreation complexes offer a range of activities, from tennis to swimming, and city officials are working on issues such as setting a user fee or whether the city should let a private firm handle the centers.
With the help of a consulting firm, recreation staff has developed several options that will be presented at the meeting.
The recreation centers were acquired last year when the city traded an office complex on Chrisanta Drive worth about $3.1 million to the Mission Viejo Co. in return for four recreation complexes valued by a city-paid land appraiser at about $11 million.
