We aren't reinventing the wheel.
Most communities within Hartford County offer recreational facilities to their residents. The Ad-Hoc committee has surveyed many P&R directors within Hartford County and those having facilities had strong departments with bustling centers and happy users. Suffield P&R has done its best to serve the public under many current constraints, but the addition of a community center would allow the department to achieve a far greater level of success and allow P&R to serve a higher volume of residents.
Through these conversations we learned that many towns in Hartford County actually repurposed existing town buildings or schools into their community centers.
Suffield is an amazing town with small town charm and big heart. A community center would only help add to our vitality.
