Central Point discusses community center, city working with Jackson Co. on project

CENTRAL POINT, Ore.–The Central Point City Council met last night to talk about options for building a new community center by the Expo.

The council narrowed it down to two options each would cost $50 to 60 million.

The first option is more expensive and includes eight gymnasiums, breakout classrooms, joint offices and a dining area.

The second option saves around $5 million by leaving two of the eight gyms uncovered.

The city’s in discussions to partner with the county on the project but it’s still early in the process.
