Share your thoughts on the new Stop Six Hub Community Center and Aquatic Facility at a meeting this Saturday.

The $17.5 million hub will replace the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, which opened in 1973 at 5565 Truman Dr.

Once the Hub is completed, the current MLK Jr. Community Center will be demolished and become park space.


The hub will have spaces for wellness and fitness, education, and social services.

In addition to the community center, there will also be a $8.2 million outdoor aquatic facility featuring:
