1st floor: poor access to shop; hard to get lumber in and out1st floor: warm waterpool needs more lanes. Outside area at Senior Center is very nice!All designs: a larger warm water pool needed. 6 lanes of warm water to accommodate the needs of the aquatic classes and youth lessons. I've seen 47 people in one 10:00 arthritis class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We need at least, 6 feet of room per person. Now this class is running at 20-25 participants. These classes would be in the warm water pull. Plus, all the others [concepts?] future needs dictate this!1st floor: more parking is great. This is the best designAs a long-time resident and aquatic participant, and many other concerned participants: For future projected population growth, a 4-lane warm water pool would not be adequate. Youth population growth means many more slots will be required for swimming lessons. The majority of these would be in the warm water pool. Even those very "young" Barracudas will start their competitive experiences in a warm water pool. The interest in competitive swimming, by youth and older, will increase when the larger cool water pool is available. Growth in the Senior population will absolutely dictate a pool with over 4 lanes. In the current Broomfield Community Center pool there has been one arthritis class (meeting 3 times per week) that has had 47 participants and 2 instructors. This class had averaged over 30 per class over several years. Those participants simply couldn't have fit into a 4 lane pool. The need for low impact exercise emphasizing joint function will only increase. Doctors are, more and more, recommending water exercise for seniors, arthritis sufferers, and for pre- and post-surgery. For many, often those with age-related disorders, their only option for exercise is in the water due to the low stress on the joints. Yes, everyone is aware on the term 'budget constraints', however, in this case, it will not be possible to just tear down a wall later to increase the room for more space. As you are planning for the future in our City and County, please make sure that there is room for the growth in all the aquatic classes by providing enough space for the participants.

1st floor: wam water pool needs more lanes. Outside area at Senior Center is very nice!Senior area unacceptable.More parking is great1st floor: warm water pool needs more lanesSeparate entrance for seniors 2. Separate parking for seniors 3. Senior classrooms on the 1st floor - elevators are difficult with walkers, oxygen, etc. 4. Many seniors travel by bus ONLY - this meeting should have been held during times buses are running. 5. A new building is a great idea! 6. Really like a walking track!! 7. Please do not build a 4-story building!

1st floor: best concept. Plan looks good to replace lost senior center building. Likes the larger woodshop and senior lounge, but would like to see more classrooms on this level. Handicap parking should be closer. Suggests a 2-door entrance for a rec and senior side, to facilitate canes, walkers, wheelchairs to expidite traffic flow for more able bodied. A double-sided check-in desk is also suggested to keep seniors from standing to long. Request for retention of Senior Specialist "Joanne", who helps with senior needs/concerns and is "amazing"!1st floor: warm water pool needs more lanes. Plaza behind apts and wood shop is good.1st floor: found all floors "OK", but prefer this option

2nd floor - likes the walking track very much.1st floor: likes this design mainly because of the parking. This design best accommodates senior and H/C accessiblity to the new facility.1st floor: Compltely disregards senior needs. Imagine seniors with canes, walkers, and oxygen tanks walking across open air plaza with ice and snow to get to classroom.
6
1st floor: please keep in mind that seniors are losing a whole building that they have used for nearly 30 years. Please consider their needs. No classrooms on 1st floor is not good.3rd floor: not appropriate
7
3rd floor: track is good4th floor: Track is good. Make provisions for expanding wood shop.
8
4th floor: a 4-story building is not appropriate for that setting.4th floor: Not appropriate for this area
