Depending on what option is picked, the estimated cost is between $12 million to $30 million. Neighbors have been pushing for it for years and have grown frustrated with the delays. “This is certainly something on the table as one of our top-tier projects that we need to get done,” said Mayor Tim Keller.

There is about $7 million already set aside for the aquatic center and more funding could be raised if voters approve bonds in November. Construction for the aquatic center could begin in 2023.
