With the June 15 deadline realized, the Holmen Area Community Center is thrilled to announce that more than 500 responses were tallied from the survey that was extended to all area citizens in an effort to determine the programming and activities deemed most important.
Information gathered about a wide variety of offerings in the areas of health, wellness, arts and crafts, and clubs will provide the foundation for the programming work that must be completed for the fall opening date of Sept. 1.
While it will be impossible to offer everything listed on the survey, attention will be given to those events/activities that garnered the highest percentage of interest. Given the large number of survey responses, many who took part in the survey also wondered just how this schedule is going to work?
If you have not seen the floor plan of this new facility, please go to our website for a solid overview of how the space is arranged.
The HACC will have dedicated space that can be used for programming specifically designated for the entire community — this space includes a large meeting area, serving kitchen and food pantry, a private lounge area, an exam room, office and storage space and restrooms.
In a model of genuine partnership, other areas of the facility will be designated as shared space that the community will be able to use when not scheduled for activities by the Holmen Boys & Girls Club of Greater La Crosse.
These spaces include a dance studio, an arts/crafts room, large conference rooms and two gymnasiums with a walking track.
The BGCGL will own the facility and act as the fiscal agent, but will offer the HACC a grace period for leasing these shared spaces due to the successful collaboration in the efforts to raise the $3.5 million needed to bring this project to life.
This shared effort reflects a model of cooperation that will continue as programming for all building space moves forward.
The Holmen BGCGL, HACC and the School District of Holmen are committed to a strong partnership that reflects the mission and vision of this project — providing activities and services that will support the people who live in our area.
