Rec Center Outsourced

Flagstaff, Arizona – January 17, 2012

Coral Evans spent her formative years inside the Cogdill Recreation Center in the Brannen Homes public housing development.

The drop-in facility just east of Lone Tree Road was a big part of the daily routine for Evans and her brother.

In fact, she credits the city-run programs at Cogdill with helping them both become successful in life, and she has been fiercely

protective of Cogdill since joining the Flagstaff City Council.

So when proposed city budget cuts the past few years put the rec center at risk of closing, Evans counterattacked. She proposed the city make deep cuts in the budget of the crown jewel of the city’s recreation division, the Flagstaff Aquaplex.

This July, the city will hand over the keys to the Cogdill Recreation Center to the newly formed Boys and Girls Club of Flagstaff.
