The Lee Beran Recreation Center will be a construction zone starting early in October when work begins on moving the Wellness & Fitness area to the main floor.
ERC Director Tom McEvoy was a guest on the Talk of Emporia this week and related the history behind the move.
At the same time as the move, the room will also have new equipment according to Wellness Supervisor Barb Rourk.
The existing area will be remodeled as a dance studio which will relieve pressure on the existing social hall. The project also will take care of some repairs in the existing locker rooms in phase two.
