Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, July 7, 2010 5A Community gives suggestions for fitness center Feather River College has assumed management of the fitness center; the new man- agement team's goal is to work with the local commu- nity to provide a quality fit- ness, health and recreation facility that meets the needs of Quincy and surrounding communities. A community forum held June 30 at Plumas Bank sought community input on the future of Feather River Fitness and Recreation. Man- agement of the fitness center was turned over to Feather River College the following day, July 1. New director Merle True- blood, athletic director of Feather River College, and the newly formed Commu- nity Relations Advisory Committee hosted the community forum. The committee includes fitness center staff and members, community members and FRC staff. Lisa Kelly, interim associate dean of student services, Jamie Cannon, di- rector of human resources, and athletic department staff and coaches also attended. Committee members explained reasons for the turnover, pointing to the practicality and logistics of managing the facility for both the Feather River College Foundation and the college. They also discussed plans to hire a new manager, assistant manager, counter staff, aerobics instructors, community education in- structors, custodial and maintenance staff. Trueblood and the advisory committee continued the meeting with a prioritization of tasks, including cleanli- ness, friendliness, smell, appearance and traffic flow. New cardio equipment and TVs are part of the plan, as well as painting and refinish- ing the floors. The center will be closed until July 12 for cleaning, re- pairs and re-organization. According to Trueblood, "We'll open with a new positive attitude and product." Trueblood outlined facility enhancements including geothermal loops, approved by the Department of Fish and Game, and installation of solar panels for Pacific Gas & Electric rebates. A new website will provide information about schedules, rates and community educa- tion opportunities. Kelly told community members community educa- tion would be based in part on the interests people have and the available expertise. Community members had an opportunity to ask questions of the advisory committee, staff and college administrators. In response to questions about fees and rate plans, More than 50 people attended a community meeting Wednesday, June 30, to discuss plans for Feather River Fitness and Recreation, now operated by Feather River College. Photo courtesy Feather River College Zona Morgan said the committee had decided core classes would be included in fees and that community education classes would be offered to members at a discount. Kelly said, "Through our plans to develop a com- prehensive community edu- cation program, we will be networking with other fitness and health providers, to provide community educa- tion offerings." In response to complaints of poor customer service under the previous manage- ment, Trueblood had a lot to say. "We are listening to you. Based upon the input from the CRAC committee as well as the community forum input, we have determined that there is a need to re- emphasize friendliness, focus on cleanliness and sanita- tion, and flow of operations. We are committed to incorpo- rating the community input into decision making and allocation of resources."
