Over 80 percent of survey respondents expressed some level of interest in a Rosedale community center or gymnasium, which has prompted Rosedale Development Association to launch a feasibility study. Of those who took the survey, just over half indicated they are “very interested” in a recreational facility, while one-third of respondents indicated that they are “somewhat interested.”

RDA plans to respond to this feedback and conduct a study to determine how viable of an option it is.

“There’s clearly a lot of need for a community center in Rosedale. We want to find out if it is economically feasible to sustain it in the long term,” Erin Stryka, RDA’s Healthy Kids Program Director, said.

One aspect of sustainability is the amount people are willing and able to pay. In the survey, the most popular response was $10 per month. Thirty-three percent said they would be willing to pay $10 per month for an individual membership, and around 20 percent expressed willingness to pay $25 per month. As many as 20 percent, however, said they would not be willing to pay a monthly fee.

The feasibility study is a lengthy process, so you can expect to see the results in the fall of 2017. In the meantime, check out some existing Rosedale exercise facilities, including Southwest Boulevard Family Health Care at 300 Southwest Blvd. or Body Blox Gym at 1153 Southwest Blvd.; or sign your child up for youth sports by calling RDA at (913) 677-5097.
