What qualifies one as a resident of Wooster?

If one lives within the corporation limits of Wooster or an adult living in one's household works within the corporation limits of Wooster, he/she is considered a resident.

If I have a Wooster address, am I considered a resident?

Not necessarily, a Wooster mailing address does not mean you reside within the corporate limits of the city.

What is the City Subsidized Taxi Program?

The City Subsidized Taxi Program is for residents who live in the Wooster City Corporation limits. Qualification is based on an individual's household income and proof of financial assistance. Please call 330-264-8677 or visit Community Action for an application and more details.

What is your youth scholarship policy?

If a child, ages 2 - 17, lives within the Wooster City Corporation limits and receives free or reduced lunches or has a Medicaid card, the child can receive 50% or up to $20.00 off one of our programs once every brochure. A child can also receive a scholarship pool pass for $20.00. The lunch letter or Medicaid card must be presented at time of registration.

Do you need to purchase a membership to the Wooster Community Center in order to participate in its activities and events?

There are no memberships to the Wooster Community Center. You pay for what you would like to do. Some activities are free to those who are 50 and older. Please see our brochure for details.

How does the wait list process work?

If an activity is full, we can place your name on a wait list. You will ONLY be contacted if an opening becomes available. Payment is needed only if registration can be accepted. Please contact the Wooster Recreation and Community Services Department if you would like to be placed on a wait list. Individuals will be placed on wait list on a first come first served basis, and will be removed and placed in the program if spaces open up in the order they were placed on.
