Proposed Perham Area Community Center Fit-Up
PACC Fit-up Project Update/Donation Requests
This is a very exciting and historic time for the Perham Area Community Center. After years of planning with the help of hundreds of stakeholders, we are poised to take the PACC to a new level through the PACC Fit up Project. There have been many ups and downs over the last few years, but we are happy to say we are moving forward with the project.
The project will begin in spring 2021 so the existing pool upgrades will be complete by August 2021. Included with this letter you will find a copy of the latest plans for the project. The plans include:
- Child’s playland
- Child watch area
- Therapy pool
- Expansion of fitness areas
- Outdoor gym space
- Senior fitness area
- 2nd floor bathrooms
- Remodel of the PACC lobby
There are also structural and mechanical changes being made to the building that will allow the PACC building to operate more efficiently, freeing up funds in the operation budget to be put toward future betterment of the PACC.
Your donation will help ensure that all components of the project detailed above are included in the final plans.
In an effort to secure financing for the Fit Up and take the project to bid by the end of January, all funds/pledges must be received by December 31, 2020.

What will the remodel look like?
Here are our most current plans for the projected changes and additions, beginning in March 2021.
Why does the PACC need improvements?
Like any business, the PACC has an operating budget based on services that are wanted and/or needed now and well into the future. The board conducted strategic planning in 2016 to address the future of the PACC including changes, improvements and cash flow. That strategic planning process resulted in a community survey and the proposed plan is a direct response to the survey results. Citizens requested more workout space, and additional programming and family activities. Secondly, our facility is showing its age and needs mechanical and structural upkeep. Just like a house, the PACC needs repairs that occasionally exceed planned expenses. Finally, the PACC needs to add services that will help attract members, sustain operations and improve our community. The PACC will continually evaluate opportunities to add aquatics features, therapy services, fitness facilities and other offerings to deliver on our mission to build healthier lives in our community.
