In 2022, Falls City Public School District was approved for a Communities for Kids grant to expand childcare capacity in the community and early childhood learning for the school district. In stakeholder discussions with community leaders, the need for a recreation/wellness center was encountered. An Ad Hoc Recreation Committee of community stakeholders was informally developed and began discussions on the possibility of a joint recreation/wellness center. The ad hoc committee traveled to other recreation/wellness centers in the region to gain knowledge of the basic understanding of services being provided and operational management.  The primary target for a recreation/wellness facility is to renovate an existing 9,000 SF city owned building and expand the facility to connect to our nearby Prichard Auditorium which is a 2000-person capacity gymnasium that received a $1.5M renovation in year 2000. In early 2023, the City of Falls City received a planning grant through the Civic and Community Center Financing Fund to begin the overall planning process.
