Roxbury Park Community Center Meeting Is Tonight

January 26, 2012

The Beverly Hills City Council is encouraging residents to attend Thursday’s meeting about the future of the Roxbury Park Community Center . The meeting takes place at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall, 455 N. Rexford Drive. Two hours of free parking is available in the city lot across the street next to the Beverly Hills Public Library. At its Dec. 6 meeting, the council  unanimously rejected the bids that were submitted for the community center’s construction because they went over the $14.7 million that has been budgeted for the project. The purpose of the project is to modernize the facility and includes: a multipurpose room that can function as a gym community meeting rooms a small satellite library  a kitchen for the senior nutrition program an exercise room staff offices and other spaces for the community upgrades to the maintenance building and yard an expanded parking lot drainage improvements a fire lane for fire-truck access to the park landscaping Council members agreed to reconsider the project through public feedback meetings led by the Recreation and Parks Liaison Committee, which includes Vice Mayor  William Brien  and Councilman Julian Gold.  “We’ll get this right—something that is safe and clean, and of Beverly Hills quality,” Brien said when the council voted in December to reject the submitted contractor bids. “I can tell you right now, the existing facility is none of those three.” Be sure to follow  Beverly Hills  Patch on  Twitter  and “Like” us on  Facebook .
