Monroe County- HTC Center

Attention Members!


To better serve you, we are cleaning and remodeling throughout the building. As you may have noticed, the Fitness Center is updated with new equipment and took on a new layout.


Starting Monday, August 25th the women’s locker room will be closed to lay down new tile. The process will take approximately two weeks. During this time the ladies may use the family locker rooms to change or the bathroom in the lobby area. There are also lockers located in the family changing rooms that are accessible to all.


On Tuesday, September 2nd the pool will shut down for annual cleaning and maintenance. It will reopen on Monday, August 8th.


Please stay tuned to your email, Facebook, mobile app and website for updates.
