Enterprise voters who have been accustomed to casting their ballots at the M . N . “Jug” Brown Recreation Center will go to a new voting location for the state Primary Election May 24The Board of Registrars notified affected voters several weeks ago that the Enterprise Civic Center would now be their voting site . The change was brought about because the 61 - year - old Rec Center is permanently closed , and is slated to be decommissioned and demolished as part of a multi - million - dollar project to build a new Recreation and Aquatic Center and make other upgrades to recreation facilities across the city . The date for a decommissioning ceremony will be announced soon , with the clearing of the site expected to begin shortly after .
The historic rec center building has been closed for about three months . While employees were moving out and the building was being emptied , the Coffee County Commission requested a change in the voting site and the Department of Justice was reviewing the request . All voting sites and changes regarding voting sites must be approved by the DOJ based on factors such as the available parking , space for voting equipment , handicap accessibility and the location , which must be somewhat centrally located within the precinct .
The Enterprise Civic Center is located at 2401 Neil Metcalf Road ( Highway 167 N ) just north of the Enterprise Recreation Complex . Residents in Precinct 14 can vote at the Civic Center anytime between 7 a . m . and 7 p . m . next Tuesday .
That precinct includes streets and housing areas such as Windover Way , Eagle’s Landing , Holly Hill , Pinehurst , Alberta , E . Watts , Dauphin Street and Dauphin Street Extension to Highway 27 N , Salem Road , parts of Rocky Head Road , Moates Road , Fairfield Drive and County Roads 539 and 540 .
