What do you want at Three Springs? Survey to gauge interests for community center

MADISON – The City of Madison wants citizen input in a survey about conversion of the Three Springs property into a new community center.

“The City of Madison needs your help in developing a vision for a new community center and park to be created on the recently acquired Three Springs property. This site’s 30 acres of land and approximately 30,000 square feet of building space will be improved to accommodate a spectrum of programs, services and amenities of interest to Madison community members of all ages,” according to a press release.

In 2019, Madison City Council revoked Three Springs’ business license after public outcry about the facility. Many complaints concerned the 2017 escape of two runaways from Three Springs who killed a construction worker behind Publix supermarket on County Line Road.

The Three Springs’ address is 1329 Browns Ferry Road, just east of County Line Road.

Survey deadline is Oct. 19. Printed copies of the survey are available at Dublin Park, 8324 Old Madison Pike in Madison; return the completed survey to Dublin. Individuals can access a digital copy of the survey at www.madisonal.gov; scroll down and click “Three Springs Community Survey.”

Taking the survey requires less than 10 minutes. All responses are confidential. On the survey, select the responses that apply to you as an individual and to other members of your household. For example, indicate the types of court and aquatic sports that interest you, along with any hobbies or table games, such as cards, Bunco, instrumental or vocal music and lectures.

You can state youth-oriented activities that the center should offer, such as classes for babysitting, martial arts and lifeguarding. Other options include movies, dance instruction, drama classes or outdoor adventures.

Adults can specify if they want computer and technological device classes, handcrafts like sewing, visual arts, pottery/ceramics, entrepreneur ventures, nutrition, foreign languages, genealogy, yoga, Zumba or gardening.

In addition, the survey asks for preferred recreation activities, like board games, movies, live entertainment, banquets or sports. What drop-in options, like an art studio, lunch or coffee, or a business incubator, would be interesting? Would you use outdoor amenities, like a pool or flower gardens?

After the submission deadline, employees will compile the survey comments and post results at www.madisonal.gov.
