4 Conclusions Austin Recreation Image About seven in ten members and residents would describe Austin as a healthy living community. Residents who are likely to join the YMCA in the Recreation Center are the most likely to describe Austin as a healthy living community. Desired Characteristics of the Recreation Center Sports and Recreational Programs Overall, members of the Austin YMCA are more likely than residents to be interested in many of the sports and recreational programs that could be offered in the Recreation Center. Specifically, seven in ten or more members have a great deal of interest in an indoor walking and running track and a fitness center, whereas only about onethird of residents have a great deal of interest in these services. About four in ten residents have a great deal of interest in bike and nature trails with equipment rentals. Those with household incomes of $50,000 or more, those who are 18 to 34 years old, and those who have children tend to be the most likely to have a great deal of interest in sports and recreational programs and services that could be offered in the Recreation Center. Community Gathering Area About one-quarter or more members and residents have a great deal of interest in most of the programs and services that could be offered in the community gathering area. Only about one in ten members and residents have a great deal of interest in parenting and mommy and me classes and about half have no interest at all in these classes. Those with household incomes of less than $30,000, females, those who are 18 to 34 years old, and those who have children between the ages of 0 and 5 in their household are the most likely to have a great deal of interest in many programs and services that could be offered in the community gathering area. 4

5 Conclusions (Cont d) Desired Characteristics of the Recreation Center (Cont d) Water Features and Activities Members are more likely than residents to have a great deal of interest in nearly all of the water features and activities that could be offered in the Recreation Center. In particular, more than two-thirds of members have a great deal of interest in an indoor pool and more than half have a great deal of interest in an indoor water park. Conversely, only about four in ten residents have a great deal of interest in an indoor pool or an indoor water park. Where differences between groups are found, females, those between the ages of 18 and 54, and those with children in their household are the most likely to have a great deal of interest in water features and activities that could be offered at the Recreation Center. Interest in Older Adult and Youth Programs One-quarter of members and three in ten residents are interested in programming for adults age 65 and over at the Recreation Center. Of those interested in such programming, four in ten or more members have a great deal of interest in fitness classes for older adults and health education and screenings, while four in ten or more residents have a great deal of interest in a rehabilitation program for arthritis and joint replacement patients and fitness classes for older adults. Those with household incomes of less than $50,000 are the most likely to be interested in programming for adults 65 and over. About four in ten members are interested in youth and teen programming, and one-third or more residents are interested in youth and teen programming at the Recreation Center. Of those interested in youth or teen programming, about six in ten or more members have a great deal of interest in organized team sports, programs and activities for kids and families, and swimming lessons. Additionally, more than half of residents have a great deal of interest in swimming lessons, organized team sports, tutoring to help students complete their schoolwork, programs and activities for kids and families, and busing from school to the Recreation Center. Those with household incomes of less than $50,000 are the most likely to have a great deal of interest in tutoring to help students complete their schoolwork. 5

6 Conclusions (Cont d) Influence of Factors on the Decision to Visit the Recreation Center More than eight in ten members and three-quarters of residents believe that a welcoming atmosphere would have a major influence on their decision to visit the Recreation Center. Two-thirds or more members and residents also believe that the cost of the programming and security at the Recreation Center would have a major influence on their decision to visit. Members, those with household incomes of $100,000 or more, females, those who are between the ages of 18 and 54, and those with children aged 0 to 13 in their household are the most likely to believe that the amenities offered would have a major influence on their decision to visit. In contrast, those with household incomes of less than $30,000 believe that a diverse staff that can speak multiple languages and public transportation to and from the Recreation Center would have a major influence on their decision to visit. Perceptions & Preferences for the Recreation Center Although about one-third of members and residents had no preference for where the new Recreation Center should be built, about one-quarter of each would prefer the Recreation Center to be built in downtown Austin. About two in ten members and one in ten residents would prefer the Recreation Center to be built in the northwest part of Austin; few preferred that the Recreation Center be built in other areas of Austin. YMCA Membership Plans More than six in ten members will definitely continue their membership at the YMCA, while more than two in ten will probably continue their membership. Of those who plan on continuing their membership, nearly three-quarters are interested in a family membership. Many of those who will definitely or probably continue their membership plan to do so because they are already a YMCA member and they want to take advantage of the services that will be offered in the new facility. One in ten residents will definitely join the YMCA, about two in ten will probably join, and slightly more than three in ten will maybe join. Of those who will definitely, probably, or maybe join, about two-thirds are interested in a family membership and one-quarter are interested in an individual membership. The most frequently mentioned reasons for definitely or probably joining the YMCA include the belief that membership is a good value and the desire to take advantage of the services that will be offered. Those with household incomes of $100,000 or more, those who are between the ages of 18 and 54, and those who have children in their household are the most likely to definitely join or continue their membership at the YMCA and to be interested in a family membership. 6

7 Conclusions (Cont d) Perceptions & Preferences for the Recreation Center (Cont d) Planned Use of the YMCA and Field House Members are more likely than residents to believe that they will use the Recreation Center more than once a week. Specifically, three-quarters of members compared to fewer than half of residents believe that they would use the Recreation Center more than once a week. About two in ten members and more than one-third of residents believe they would use the Recreation Center about once a week. Additionally, those who are between the ages of 18 and 54 are more likely than those in other age groups to believe that they would use the Recreation Center more than once a week. More than half of residents would never use the Field House, which would include an indoor soccer field, on a pay-per-use basis. In contrast, about one-quarter of residents would use the Field House about once a month or more frequently. YMCA Membership Status More than seven in ten residents reported that they or someone in their household have been a member of the YMCA in the past. Residents who will definitely, probably, or maybe join the YMCA, those with household incomes of $50,000 or more, those who are between the ages of 18 and 54, and those who have children in their household are the most likely to report previous YMCA membership. About two in ten members and one-third of residents have someone in their household who currently has a $1 per year YMCA youth membership. Those who will definitely, probably, or maybe join the YMCA and those with children 6 years old or older are the most likely to currently have someone in their household who has a $1 YMCA youth membership. If the cost of the $1 YMCA youth membership were to increase to $3, more than eight in ten members and more than three-quarters of residents would be very likely to pay the $3. In contrast, fewer than half of members and slightly more than one-third of residents would be very likely to purchase a YMCA family membership for $65 per month, while nearly three in ten members and residents would be very unlikely to purchase a YMCA family membership. 7

8 Conclusions (Cont d) Overall Conclusions There is substantial belief among members and residents that Austin is a healthy living community. Members and residents are most interested in an indoor walking and running track, a fitness center with cardiovascular fitness machines, strength conditioning machines, and free weights, group fitness classes, an indoor multi-purpose Field House with a soccer field, bike and nature trails with equipment rentals, an indoor pool, and an indoor water park. Residents who are likely joiners of the YMCA in the Recreation Center are more likely than others to have a great deal of interest in most of the programs and services that could be offered in the new Recreation Center and gathering area. Members and residents are interested in older adult, youth, and teen programming. Both members and residents believe that a welcoming atmosphere will have a major influence on their decision to visit the new Recreation Center. Most members and residents have no preference for where the new Recreation Center should be built; among those with a preference, however, most would prefer it be built in downtown Austin. There is strong interest among both members and residents in joining the YMCA in the Recreation Center. A typical resident who is a likely joiner of the YMCA in the Recreation Center has children living in the household under the age of 18, is between the ages of 35 and 54, and has an annual income of $50,000 or more. Most of those who currently have someone in their household with a $1 YMCA youth membership would be very likely to pay $3 for the youth membership if the cost were to increase. Hispanics and non-caucasians tend to be more likely than others to have a great deal of interest in several programs and services that could be offered in the Recreation Center and community gathering area, such as an indoor multipurpose Field House with a soccer field, an indoor water park, and a full-time, Monday through Friday, summer care program. Hispanics and non-caucasians also tend to be the most likely to believe that a diverse staff that can speak multiple languages would have a major influence on their decision to visit the Recreation Center. Finally, Caucasians and non-caucasians express similar levels of interest in joining or continuing their membership at the YMCA in the Recreation Center. 8

9 Recommendations The Vision 2020 committee should strongly consider including an indoor walking and running track, a fitness center with cardiovascular fitness machines, strength conditioning machines and free weights, group fitness classes, an indoor multi-purpose Field House with a soccer field, bike and nature trails with equipment rentals, an indoor pool, and an indoor water park in the new Recreation Center, as these were some of the most desired programs and services by both members and residents. Although there was only moderate interest from members and residents in the programs and services that could be offered in the community gathering area, the Vision 2020 committee should still consider offering them. Most would require relatively little space or overhead, and they offer area residents a place to gather together and build community ties. These programs and services would be particularly beneficial to area residents with lower incomes. Additionally, offering these programs and services in a space shared with the YMCA might drive increased YMCA membership and paid use of the indoor Field House. To meet the needs of older adults, the Vision 2020 committee might want to ensure that the Recreation Center offers fitness classes for older adults and rehabilitation programs for arthritis and joint-replacement patients, as members and residents, particularly those who are likely to join the YMCA, showed a great deal of interest in both. To attract families with children, the Vision 2020 committee should consider offering organized team sports, swimming lessons, and programs and activities for kids and families to do together. Each of these are highly desired by both members and residents and would likely offer the greatest return on investment as current YMCA members and likely joiners are more likely than others to have children in their households. There is at least some interest in all the potential programs and services that could be offered at the Recreation Center. The Vision 2020 committee should offer as many of these as possible to maximize market impact, increase resident satisfaction, and potentially drive more people to live and stay in the Austin area. The Vision 2020 committee should keep in mind that some programs it may offer do not require large numbers of participants to make them feasible and that a relatively small percentage of people who express interest may translate into a sufficient number of people for a particular program. The Vision 2020 committee should recognize that both members and residents believe that having a welcoming atmosphere will have a major influence on their decision to visit the Recreation Center. As such, it is strongly recommended that steps are taken to ensure that the facility is built and operated with an aim to make all visitors feel welcome. It will also be important to manage costs, security, and the hours the facility is open, as all three are believed by members and residents to have a major influence on their decision to visit the Recreation Center. 9

10 Recommendations The Vision 2020 committee should strongly consider the feasibility of building the facility in downtown Austin, as a downtown location would likely please most members and residents. The Vision 2020 committee should be pleased that large numbers of YMCA members plan to continue their YMCA membership in the Recreation Center. The Vision 2020 committee should also recognize that there is a substantial number of residents who are interested in joining the YMCA in the Recreation Center. To capitalize on this interest, the Vision 2020 committee should ensure that its marketing of the new Recreation Center includes detailed descriptions of all the benefits YMCA members will receive, including free use of the Field House which will include an indoor soccer field. The Vision 2020 committee should recognize that many of those who have no intention of joining the YMCA do not plan on using the Field House on a pay-per-use basis. To increase interest among community members who are not members of the YMCA, the Vision 2020 committee should strive to make residents aware of the activities available in the Field House, such as an indoor soccer field, and work to develop a fee schedule that area residents find acceptable. If the YMCA increases the cost of its youth membership from $1 to $3, it should be aware that most people would be willing to pay the higher cost. The YMCA and the Vision 2020 team should consider the pros and cons of raising the cost of the youth membership carefully, but recognize that doing so will not cause many youth to cancel their membership. As such, to ensure that youth still have a safe and supervised place to stay active, the YMCA is advised to continue its youth membership program, even if costs to area residents need to be increased. Overall, results from the qualitative and quantitative research demonstrate a strong desire for a Recreation Center to act as a central recreational hub for the city of Austin. When designing the Recreation Center, the Vision 2020 committee should carefully consider the diverse demographics of the Austin community and ensure that people at all income levels and in all age groups have access to the programs and services offered at the Recreation Center. Most importantly, the Vision 2020 committee should ensure that the Recreation Center is welcoming to all area residents, employs a diverse staff, and provides public transportation to encourage the entire community to participate in the Recreation Center. The Vision 2020 team is encouraged to recommend construction of the Recreation Center, as the YMCA that will be located there is projected to have a larger membership base and revenue stream than the existing Austin YMCA. 10

11 Background and Purpose This research was conducted to determine area residents desire for a multi-purpose Recreation Center and what features and services area residents would like the Recreation Center to offer. Specifically, the Austin Vision 2020 team sought to learn the following: Fitness and programming needs for adults, families, youth, and seniors Program preferences and desired amenities What could be done to make the Recreation Center feel like a welcoming place to all area residents Area residents preference for the location of the Recreation Center Likelihood that residents would join the YMCA located in the Recreation Center Residents reaction to an increase in the cost of a YMCA youth membership Austin Vision 2020 sponsored this research and retained the independent market research firm of Anderson, Niebuhr, & Associates, Inc. to conduct the study. 11

Regardless of location, the new Recreation Center would include an indoor pool, gym, a running/walking track, exercise equipment, and exercise studios for fitness classes among other services and programs. A YMCA membership would also provide access to a Field House at no extra charge, which will include indoor soccer fields, volleyball and basketball courts, a running track, and ample spectator seating at no extra charge. How likely or unlikely would you be to continue your membership at the YMCA located in the Recreation Center if the cost of membership was $45 per month for an individual membership and $65 per month for a family membership?
