Plymouth Creek Center project to be considered at two meetings
To view additional design images, amenities and more information about the proposed project, visit plymouthmn.gov/pccproject.
The City Council will consider whether to approve the proposed design, including building plans, amenities and layout for the project. Additionally, council will consider authorizing construction documents, so the city may proceed with the bidding process in the future.
The proposed project includes gym space, a walking track, an indoor playground, fitness studios, senior spaces, classrooms, meeting spaces and an arts studio.
Study Session Sept. 5
The project architect, HGA, presented the schematic design – which showed building layout and amenities – to the City Council at a study session 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5 at Plymouth City Hall. A refined cost estimate was also presented at the meeting.

Regular City Council Meeting Sept. 10
At its regular meeting, 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Plymouth City Hall, the City Council is scheduled to consider the next phase of the project, including authorizing construction documents. Public comment and questions will be heard at the meeting.
The September meetings follow the most recent round of community engagement for the proposed Plymouth Creek Center project. The city held a year-long community engagement process throughout 2018 to determine the types of spaces included in a potential project.
Another phase of community engagement took place this summer with a FlashVote survey, online feedback forms and an open house.
In late July, City Council reviewed community feedback and directed staff to continue developing plans for the potential renovation and expansion.
The preliminary project cost estimate is roughly $50 million, which includes an estimated $8 million for existing building renovation and maintenance. The city is seeking $15 million in state bond funds and other offsetting revenues to help pay for the project. If the project were to be solely funded by property taxes, owners of $300,000-$500,000 homes would see an average tax impact of about $78-$135 per year or $6-$11 per month.
