Violet Township held a Community Center Public Meeting on December 6, 2018 where over 100 residents were in attendance to listen to Violet Township staff, and its consultants Moody Nolan and Rockmill Financial, present the details of a future community center.   Over the last six months, Moody Nolan has worked with over 60 residents in focus group meetings along with a steering committee to help identify the various components of the proposed facility and the associated cost.  Simultaneously, Rockmill Financial has worked with a Community Center Finance Committee comprised of approximately 60 residents (average attendance of 37 per meeting) to identify the best way to finance the proposed facility.

At the December 6th meeting, a potential community center layout, site layout and conceptual renderings were presented.   The proposed cost to construct the potential community center is projected to be $46 million with an additional $2 million annually for operations.  The Community Center Finance Committee is recommending that a Parks and Recreation Tax Levy be placed on the May 2019 ballot, which if approved, would allow the township to finance the construction of the community center over a 25 year period and provide $2 million annually for operations along with $210,000 for annual capital replacement.  This proposed tax levy, based upon the 2019 Estimated Property Tax Valuation, will be $13.39 monthly per $100,000 home.

This information will now be presented to the Township Trustees who will determine if and when to place a tax levy on the ballot.
