The Wheeling Park District is receiving bids for an estimated $16.9 million renovation of the Community Recreation Center at 333 W. Dundee Road.

The proposed renovation will include an enlarged, modern fitness center and group exercise space; relocation of the preschool; a second gymnasium; and programming space on the first level.

 

The facility is 25 years old and had its last significant upgrade in 1999, when the fitness center and indoor pool were added.

The majority of funding will come from the park district's capital project fund. A tax increase will not be necessary.

If the project budget is approved by the district's board, work is expected to begin in March. Programming and services will continue during the estimated 18-month construction period.
