Summit on the Park will close some of its facilities starting today to allow for several energy efficiency and water conservation technology upgrades in the building.
Renovation projects include improvements to the Summit's heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
Areas to close today until Feb. 20 during renovations:
- Aquatic Center pools, sauna and steam room
- Women's, Men's and Special Accommodation/Family locker rooms
Areas to close 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today and tomorrow and 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday:
- Fitness Center
- Indoor Track
- Aerobics Studio
- Dance Studios
All fitness classes will be relocated to other Summit rooms throughout construction. Also, the Summit's east parking lot will not be available during most of the construction phase.
Summit staff will provide some fitness equipment in the Summit Banquet area during the closures. However, there will be no access to locker rooms and shower facilities during those times.
Certain renovation areas must be completely empty during construction because a crane will install large air-handling rooftop units, which weigh approximately 25,000 pounds and are about the size of a railroad freight car.
The equipment upgrades are being financed by annual cost savings over a 15-year period as a result of an Energy Savings Performance Contract between Canton Township and Chevron Energy Solutions. No Canton Township operating funds were used to pay for the improvements.
Starting Feb. 1, Summit staff added one month of membership to current Summit members because of the scheduling inconvenience for members. Aquatic swim lesson participants will receive a credit on account for classes missed today through Feb. 22.
