About the Committee for Recreation

The Committee for Recreation supports Broadview Heights Parks & Recreation. The Committee is composed of Broadview Heights residents and friends invested in the future of our wonderful community, and is charged with building support for the levy to support Parks and Recreation in Broadview Heights.

On November 7th, voters in Broadview Heights will be voting on an operating levy that would support Broadview Heights Community Parks and Recreation.  This temporary 0.7 mill operating levy would cost residents ONLY $2.04 per month per $100,000 property valuation, to maintain the parks and recreation facilities and services that the community enjoys.

This levy is critical for maintaining affordable and accessible Community Parks and Recreation Services!

The funds from this operating levy would be used for:

  • Keeping recreation center memberships affordable for residents
  • Supporting holiday and special events
  • Maintaining outdoor parks and athletic facilities
  • Maintaining programs and services
  • Operating the new Community and Recreation Center, which will include: A new 7,000-sq. foot fitness center, A new 11,080-sq. foot gymnasium with 2 full size courts and an elevated 3-lane track, , A new lobby, locker rooms, childcare space, party/community rooms and casual activity space with vending, and a new 8,347 sf natatorium which includes: (4) 25-meter lap lanes, a lazy river, social/program area, a zero depth entry area with a play structure and water features, waterslide, whirlpool spa, steam/sauna rooms, an aquatic climbing wall, basketball hoops and volleyball

What happens if the levy fails?

  • Membership rates at the new Recreation Center will increase drastically
  • The operating hours of the new facility could be reduced
  • Free and reduced-cost programs, such as Silver Sneakers, could be impacted
  • Other programs and the maintenance of some facilities could be impacted



We need your help to run an effective information campaign to reach all of the voting residents of Broadview Heights.  We are desperately in need of donations to help with the cost of yard signs, mailers, handouts, postage and more!  Please consider making a donation to the Broadview Heights Committee for Recreation to support the November 7th ballot issue!  Community Parks and Recreation facilities and services increase the quality of life for residents, help maintain high property values, foster a strong community and provide positive economic results for our local businesses!  Please help us support a stronger, healthier, Broadview Heights!  The fundraising goal is to reach $5,000 by October 1st.
