Interested community members are invited to attend one of three Town Hall Meetings to learn more about the proposed Scottsbluff Aquatics Center and to provide public input. Existing aquatics facilities like the Westmoor Pool, YMCA Swimming Pool, former Splash Arena at Scottsbluff High School, and the Regional West Therapy Pool are all in need of significant and costly repairs/upgrades in the near future. This November, there will be a ballot initiative for an additional half-cent sales tax to fund a new Scottsbluff Aquatics Center.
Town Hall Meetings have been scheduled for the following dates:
Monday, May 23 – 6:00 PM, Scottsbluff High School Boardroom
Tuesday, May 31 – Noon, Scottsbluff High School Boardroom
Tuesday, May 31 – 6:00 PM, Scottsbluff High School Boardroom
Information about the current state of local aquatics facilities, results of the public input survey conducted in March, and preliminary project details will be shared at the meetings. Members of the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. Representatives from the key project partners, the City of Scottsbluff, Scottsbluff Public Schools and the Scottsbluff Family YMCA will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.
