Why A Multi-Purpose Center Can Be Successful In Your Community
If your community is looking at developing and building a community center, the facility planning process will be a crucial aspect. Determining what your demographics are and what the feasibility of your project is are important factors in the process. However, arguably the most important part of the facility planning process is deciding what type of facility you will build.
Will you develop a recreation center, a sport-specific center, or the more common multi-purpose center? At Sports Facilities Advisory, we believe that a multi-purpose center might be the best option for your community and in today’s post, we will give you four reasons why we think so.
1. They Are Cost-Effective
The biggest benefit to a multi-purpose center is that it is more cost-effective than other facilities. Why? Well, with a multi-purpose center, you will be able to host more activities, whether they be sports leagues or youth programs, which makes for more revenue streams. While a community center is ultimately for the community, the center itself has to generate revenue to stay afloat. A multi-purpose facility has that ability.
2. They Are Inclusive
Too often, community centers are developed and built without considering the community as a whole. There might be a large contingency of people in your community that loves basketball, but if you build a facility specifically for basketball, the other people in your community will have no use for it. A multi-purpose center is more inclusive than those facilities and will encourage your community to be more involved.
3. They Are Perfect For Youth
A constant struggle of communities across the country is what to do with youth. Too often, young kids and teenagers are left with nowhere to go after school, especially if both their parents work. A multi-purpose center is a perfect place for youth to go after school because it can host all sorts of after-school programs, including sports leagues and other extracurricular activities. This sort of community center is good for the youth of your community because it ensures that they are safe and have a place to socialize.
4. They Can Connect Your Community
Lastly, a multi-purpose facility is beneficial because it has the ability to connect people to their community. In a community center that can host a multitude of programs and events, there are more and more opportunities for people in the community to develop relationships and friendships.
