Westside Community Center

Westside Community Center

The Westside Community Center continues to be a resource for the thriving and active west side of Colorado Springs. The Center for Strategic Ministry, a supporting organization of Woodmen Valley Chapel, began operating the Westside Community Center in 2010. As of June 1, 2022, the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department resumed operations for the Westside Community Center.

Starting in September of 2022, the Westside Community Center will begin operating as a public-private partnership. This new operational model integrates feedback from resident recommendations. It includes City staffing and operational funding while providing partnership and revenue-generating opportunities with external entities, including nonprofit organizations. Read more here.

We are excited to share with you the initial draft proposal for the formation of the Westside Community Center Working Committee.  A key request during the community engagement process was to create an advisory board to help inform the building usage as well as programs and services provided through the Center.  Creating a working committee that reports to the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Advisory Board, similar to the TOPS Working Committee, meets this request with an existing format and model, thus streamlining and expediting the working committee’s establishment.  The attached document includes how the committee will be formed, its roles and responsibilities, a timeline for applying to be a member, and the process for selecting those members.
