St. Joseph is taking the next step towards a proposed $6.1 million outdoor aquatic center project. The proposed project includes a lazy river, lap pool, splash pool, zero depth entry pool, climbing wall and a zip line.
With the planned construction of a new YMCA Aquatic and Community Center, some local fitness club owners are raising concerns. Recent plans have said that along with a new Aquatic Center, the Y will also be adding additional facilities that owners say may harm their businesses.
The city of St. Cloud had only one organization step up and ask to partner on building and operating a new aquatic center. Mayor Dave Kleis says the YMCA and the city will work to move forward on building the facility.
St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis is looking for community organizations interested in helping build an aquatic center. He says the cost to build the facility will be more than the $10 million in half-cent sales tax dollars the city has allocated for the project.
St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis talked about air service during his "State of the City" address today (Tuesday). He says direct service to Chicago by the end of this year is a top priority. He also mentioned that the aquatic center is long overdue. And he says you should watch for upgrades coming to the city's website.
