Rally around the rec center

Advertisement

While there may be some questions and concerns about the specific financing plan regarding the rec center plan, the bottom line is that it is a good plan and worth voting for.

Facilities such as the one proposed not only greatly increases the quality of life of those who live here, it also leaves a valued impression on those who visit here.

Voters on Tuesday will have the opportunity to have the final say on whether a combination sales tax and use tax increase will be used to fund a 57,000-square-foot recreation center. The proposed facility would boast a leisure pool with slide, lazy river and spray features, a six-lane lap pool, two racquetball courts, elevated walking track, 160-person meeting room with catering kitchen, senior citizen and teen room, a fitness center, aerobics room, gymnasium and six-point indoor shooting range.

With the passage of the plan, Moffat County would find itself in an enviable position with yet another attraction to make Craig a vacation desitination with a facility to bring in groups from all over the country.

Not only that but those who live here would have a state-of-the-art facility to enhance their lives and health.

Would it amount to an increase in taxes? Yes. But would it be worth it? We think the answer is also "yes."
