The City of Santa Clarita is inviting Canyon Country Residents to attend a public outreach meeting to learn about and to provide feedback on the Canyon Country Community Center from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday Nov. 7, at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex/Activities Center located at 20870 Center Pointe Parkway.

This will be the first time residents will get to share their ideas and recommendations for  future programs, activities and services at the center. The ongoing operations of the center will be flexible and continue to evolve while the community engages in the process.

“The Canyon Country Community Center is a Highly anticipated project, which will provide enriching opportunities in a fun and safe environment for the residents of Canyon Country” said mayor Frank Ferry. “the city of Santa Clarita wants to gather feedback to ensure that the Center’s programming and services are reflective on the needs and desires of the community.”

Locals have already started submitting ideas on such as a “Kids Night Out” event where “Parents drop their kids off for a few hours one evening. The kids watch a movie and do crafts etc. while parents get time to have fun on their own.” The website also features an interactive blog as well as information about upcoming public outreach meetings.

The Canyon Country Community Center, located on Flying Tiger Drive off Sierra Highway, is easily accessible by walking, biking, public transportation or car. It’s designed to provide a hybrid of recreational programming and human services in both a traditional and non-traditional setting. Programs and services will be multi-faceted provided in and around the Center to diverse audiences of children, teens, parents, and seniors.
