New Fees for 2019
Changes are coming in 2019 to better serve members and patrons. Beginning January 1, 2019, rates are increasing for the first time in over a decade, with 100% of rate increases going toward an exclusive fund for recreation facilities.
This means recreation projects don’t have to compete for funding with other citywide projects, so your investment goes directly toward the recreation amenities you know and love. The first two projects benefiting from this new recreation fund are the future Dublin Community Pool North renovation and a refresh of the Dublin Community Recreation Center interior.
We’re committed to keeping fees among the lowest in the region compared to similar recreation centers. To help members in this transition, we are offering the option to renew prior to January 1, 2019, paid in full, to receive the 2018 rate for the year ahead. Early renewal extends your membership 12 months after the original expiration date. For example, if your current membership expires March 1, 2019, early renewal covers March 1, 2019 – March 1, 2020.
For those who renew at the time of their regular renewal period, staff will be happy to explain fee changes and answer any questions.

City Resident, School District Resident, Non-Resident Fees Explained
Dublin City Council recognizes that the facilities and programs offered by Recreation Services should provide beneficial pricing and priority to the residents of the City. City Council’s current financial policy is to keep fees for residents participating in recreation classes and other recreational amenities at a moderate level. These financial policies have been implemented to benefit residents and to encourage a healthy community. School District Residents and Non-Residents do not receive the tax-subsidized pricing received by the residents of the City of Dublin.
Fees for recreation center annual passes, seasonal passes and program registrations are determined by where people live. You are considered a City Resident if you reside within the City of Dublin corporate limits. School District Residents reside in the Dublin School District, but not within the City of Dublin corporate limits. Anyone not fitting into one of these two categories is considered a Non-Resident. Your mailing address or school district is not always an accurate indication of your City of Dublin residency status. You may research your residency status at https://dublinohiousa.gov/taxation.
