ST. CLOUD – A St. Cloud aquatic center is expected to take another step toward becoming a reality tonight (Monday).

The St. Cloud city council will consider the approval of a contract with HMA Architects for the design and construction of the St. Cloud/YMCA Community Aquatics Center.

The firm will be paid $1.3 million for their services.

The total cost of the project is expected to be between $19 million and $23 million.

St. Cloud will pay about $10 million, using half-cent sales tax dollars.  The YMCA is getting ready to launch a fundraising campaign for the other $10 million.

The goal is to begin construction next year, but that depends on how quickly the Y can raise their money.  It’s also possible other area cities could agree to use some of their half-cent sales tax dollars for the project, which would help add to the amenities.

The facility would be built in Whitney Park.

Tonight’s action is part of the council consent agenda.
