In May, the Board authorized staff to fund, design and build the projects brought forward by community members: permanent pickleball courts, a dog park and an expanded skate park, as well as to complete a small expansion and renovation of the Community Center, which is nearing final design and the construction bid process.
At the July 26 ACC Board meeting, staff provided an update on the Master Plan projects, including estimated financial forecasts and proposed project schedules. The Board approved the following proposed schedule as “target dates” to work toward:
- Community Center project: Complete County plan review and the bid process to allow construction to begin in the fall and be completed in first quarter 2018.
- Pickleball courts: Pre-construction planning to start in the first quarter of 2018, with project completion in the fourth quarter of 2018.
- Dog Park: Pre-construction planning to begin in third quarter of 2018, with project completion in third quarter of 2019.
- Skate Park expansion: Pre-construction planning to begin in third quarter of 2019, with project completion in second quarter of 2020. Shade structure and benches will be added this fall to current Skate Park.
Dates are tentative and subject to detailed design work, County plan review, construction bidding, staffing and funding capacity, etc. Design and construction costs for these projects will be covered by the Enhancement Fund, which is funded by a 1/4-of-1-percent fee when homes in Anthem are sold.

ACC Board president Roger Willis said, “The Board is 100 percent committed to seeing all four projects completed. Barring any significant unseen obstacles, all projects will be complete by the end of 2020; completing them on time and on schedule without sacrificing the quality of our day-to-day programs and services to the entire community is our primary goal.”
