Do you live in Tierra Verde (either full-time or part-time)? Yes
Did you attend the public meeting about the future of the Tierra Verde Recreation Center on Oct. 12, 2022? Yes
Please rate your level of agreement with this statement: The design meets the goals of the recreation center to provide onsite management of the ball fields and community space for events and meetings. Agree
Please rate your level of agreement with this statement: The proposed design will fit in well with its surroundings. Disagree
In designing the multi-purpose room, it is important to know how the room will be used. What types of meetings or events do you believe the room should be configured to accommodate? (Select all that apply.) Board room-style meetings with people seated at tables in a large U or square shape, Theater-style meetings for presentations, Meetings with table groupings that allow for interaction among the attendees, Banquets/dinners, Performances, Other - Not enough parking to support 160 attendees
Because the building must be built above ground on pilings, we have an opportunity to use the shaded space below part of the building. What would you like to see in that space? (Check all that apply.) Picnic tables for leisure and/or informal meetings
The current capacity for the multipurpose room in this design is 160 people. Is this: More than we need
Understanding that the project is constrained by the available space and budget, do you have any suggestions for how to improve the proposed design? Below building space—Ceiling fans,adequate lighting for night events, shuffleboard, screened under building for mosquitos/no-seeums
Windows for office personel—Too much emphasis on large meeting room—Need more rooms for book clubs, cards, HOA/Condo meetings—Tierra Verde Women’s Club has a lot of Interest Groups with regular monthly meeting—need space for multiple meetings at same time—building style does not represent community-needs a coastal vibe—Need to find way to offer more parking options—Large windows need consideration for glare—Don’t see need for consession sales—Exposed beams/trusses in large room—Not enough storage space for table/chair carts—Conference room is extra large, limiting multi purpose use—Too much wasted space in Reception- could convert to conference and main office allowing your extra large room conference room to be separated into 2 separate spaces—
Would like to see drawings with dimensions to be able to offer more constructive suggestions.
Would like to participate in a community committee to work on this project.
We have design professionals living in Tierra Verde that would be good resources. Under building space question only allows for 1 response.

(Select all that apply.) Meetings with table groupings that allow for interaction among the attendees, Banquets/dinners, Performances, Other - the small room should not be part of the public space. it was intended for a TVCA only meeting room not to rent out d to be the board room for the officers of the TVCA
Because the building must be built above ground on pilings, we have an opportunity to use the shaded space below part of the building. What would you like to see in that space? (Check all that apply.) Picnic tables for leisure and/or informal meetings
The current capacity for the multipurpose room in this design is 160 people. Is this: More than we need
Understanding that the project is constrained by the available space and budget, do you have any suggestions for how to improve the proposed design? as mentioned above, the small meeting room should be for the TVCA officers and special meetings not rented out to the public or redesign your space to add a board room and keep what the TVCA currently has.
The use for the open space underneath will be a challenge for several reasons
1)if it is open for easy entry, it will be subject to vandalism which has happened in the park and ballfield area. it needs to be secure when not in use especially if you put recreation equipment underneath 2) that area and all T V has a big problem with mosquitos and No-see-ums , will be a problem for guest's trying to use the open area. Lights attract the bugs.
3) it will be hot most of the year and you will need ceiling fans or a misting system to make it useable.
will you be able to use a gas or charcoal grill on the upper deck to cook for ball games or other events?
will there be sufficient refrigeration in the Warming Kitchen. in general this place is somewhat remote and will your entrance ways ( doors) be secure from break-in's?
hope this is helpful and thanks for getting the project off the ground

Understanding that the project is constrained by the available space and budget, do you have any suggestions for how to improve the proposed design? I like the rec center and support it as-is. The layout looks great and will be a great addition to Tierra Verde. I'd only like more consideration to having the front of the building fitting better into the island and/or beach themes more reflective of Tierra Verde.

While I can understand folks wanting to get an island theme (key west), mixing it up design may be well received. One only has to do driving tour of the community to see the variety of design across Tierra Verde. I have been involved with this project for a number of years, and would available to volunteer in whatever capacity necessary to help bring this project to completion. Thank you again for your hard work.

Understanding that the project is constrained by the available space and budget, do you have any suggestions for how to improve the proposed design? Survey does not allow for more than one response for use of under building area. Instructions say check all that apply. I wanted to check picnic area too. I would like to suggest the color of the outer building not be the institutional blue as in the drawing, but something that fits into the natural background better. Also, I think that a concession stand area should not be a part of this design. Waste of space not enough usage. Instead incorporate that area into either more storage or to enlarge the common meeting room
