$7 Million Budgeted for Jelleff Rec Center

Georgetowner: $7 Million Budgeted for Jelleff Rec CenterMore than 100 people including local advocates showed up for the Department of Parks and Recreation’s midsummer information meeting to hear about preliminary plans to remodel Georgetown’s low-profile recreation center and swimming pool. “This is a very exciting opportunity for the community,” said Kishan Putta, a Jelleff Center neighbor and community advocate.After the meeting, a group of us stayed on to talk about how we can advocate for more than what was laid out at this first meeting. A few of us have already spoken with Ward 2 and 3 District Council members Jack Evans and Mary Cheh. If we’re going to do it, let’s do it right. Two basketball courts are obviously needed, as well as a multi-use athletic center and meeting space. The basement when remodeled also can provides a large space for multiple uses. None of Georgetown’s parks have indoor athletic centers. Only Jelleff.”
