City of Redmond seeking feedback on name for new community center

A online questionaire has been issued for residents to give input.

The City of Redmond is looking for community input to help decide the name of the new community center.

A new and larger community center is coming to Redmond and as ground has broken on the project, the new facility is slated to open in late 2023.

Feedback on the name is being solicited in a variety of ways – at in-person events, over social media, in conversations with the public, over email and phone calls, and in an online questionnaire you can find here.

While the questionnaire allows for open suggestions, the top three names are currently:

Redmond Senior & Community Center – The city says this name recognizes the new facility as a space for all generations to enjoy, gather, and recreate as a part of the vibrant community of Redmond.

Red Oak Community Center – This name is a nod to the heritage oak tree located between the new community center and City Hall. The tree is a beloved landmark that has often been used for holiday tree lightings and other community events.

Downtown Redmond Senior & Community Center – This name celebrates the location of the new community center situated in the heart of Redmond’s municipal campus.
