As you may be aware, the GVRD will stop all programming at the Mare Island Sports Center effective April 30th , 2020 and the building will be closed. Recent structural engineering studies determined the building is structurally unsound and is unsafe for continued use as a gymnasium for hundreds of youth and adults.
This past Monday, I met with Councilmembers Hakeem Brown and Pippin Dew, City Manager Greg Nyhoff along with other representatives of the City of Vallejo, The Nimitz Group, Vallejo Unified School District, Vallejo Police Department, Vallejo Chamber of Commerce and others to discuss various scenarios to allow GVRD’s Mare Island Sports Center activities to continue at alternate locations within the City of Vallejo.
Together we are studying several promising ideas and hope to have something figured out shortly. We will issue another update as soon as we have more information. Thank you for your patience as we work together to continue to meet the recreational needs of all Vallejoans.
