Official: New rec center hours unrelated to city budget woes

Carmel Valley Recreation Center users might have panicked when they saw gym hours were drastically cut at the center this month. Luckily, the cuts have nothing to do with citywide budget cuts to parks and recreation facilities.

According to Johnny Chou, center director, the trimmed hours are only due to the youth basketball league season.

The altered gym schedule will only be in effect until the first or second week of March, Chou said, depending on playoffs.

The Carmel Valley Recreation Council is trying to do everything it can to keep the recreation center operating as normal, in some cases using its reserve funds.

To learn more about what the council does or make suggestions for the center, attend its coming meeting on Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. at the recreation center.

Carmel Valley Recreation Center hours through March:
- Monday through Friday: 12 to 7:45 p.m.
- Saturday: 9 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.
- Sunday: closed
- The center will also be closed Monday, Feb. 16, for Presidents Day
