Facilities Master Plan

Facilities Master Plan

The purpose of the Facilities Master Plan (FMP) is to identify and prioritize additional “quality of life” projects that may be funded, designed and built in the next five years or more. The Board approved two significant community projects for funding in the last three years—the purchase and renovation of the Anthem Civic Building (completed in 2014) and Opportunity Way Park (completed in 2016). View the full history of the Facilities Master Plan.

Facilities Master Plan Re-evaluation

As part of their 2016-17 Work Plan, the Community Planning and Development Committee (CPDC) included a re-evaluation of the FMP to determine priority projects for funding consideration. This re-evaluation process will keep the FMP relevant and take into consideration projected Enhancement Fund cash flow and updated demographics, preferences and needs. 


Phase IV - Community Planning and Development Committee to present initial report to ACC Board: May 24, 2017

At the May 24 Board meeting, the Board approved to support steps to fund, design and build the pickleball, dog park, and base skate park expansion projects, along with adding the Community Center renovation project, in accordance with project schedules to be developed by staff and approved by the Board, as budget and resources allow.

The Board also directed staff to conduct further research and financial analysis and provide proposed project schedules and related recommendations for the Board’s consideration (target date July 2017) with the addition that no external funding is to be considered.

The Meridian Dr. site for the dog park will remain as an option. Staff was directed to conduct targeted outreach with homeowners in Anthem and Desert Hills neighborhoods located within 500 feet of the proposed dog park site boundary and provide the Board with a summary of resident input at a future Board meeting (target date July 2017).
