The City of Columbia and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) entered into a Lease and Memorandum of Understanding on January 29, 2009 whereby MDC will use 18.5 acres in the northeast area of Gans Creek Recreation Area to construct and operate a regional office in exchange for the City of Columbia's use of the 106-acre Waters-Moss Memorial Wildlife Area for public recreation purposes.
Funding for the conversion of the buildings to activity centers came from the City's Designated Loan Fund and will be paid back with the lease savings resulting from no longer renting the Stephens Lake Activity Center. Project was approved at the April 1, 2013 Council Meeting.
After researching the history of the property and buildings, staff designated new names for the buildings on the property, as follows:
The Hillcrest parking lot expansion, concrete ADA parking spot, and new asphalt parking lots were funded from FY 2014 Roads and Parking.
The HIllcrest Community Center is completed and opened for business on January 21, 2014. Moss Building is completed. Both buildings were dedicated on August 28, 2014. Work is underway on the outdoor park portion of the project which includes a shelter, a playground and a restroom..
