The Mitchell Park and Recreation Board is taking a fresh look at Camp Arroya, a city-owned facility tucked into the shore of Lake Mitchell.

The city owns but leases the camp to a private entity. That 25-year lease will expire at the end of this year, and Dusty Rodiek, Mitchell's director of parks, recreation and forestry, said he and others compiled a list of ideas about how to utilize Camp Arroya if the city decides not to renew the lease.

Rodiek made no official recommendation Tuesday night to the Park and Recreation Board, and he said the biggest question he gets regarding the facility is about usage, which he said he doesn't know much about.

"I thought it would be a good time to have a discussion," he said. "The perception is that the facility is underutilized."

Board members asked if they could get usage data, which Sherry Stilley, secretary of the board that manages Camp Arroya, said she would provide to them in time for their next meeting.
