New Aquatic Center

This week Ames held a special election to determine whether we can do a bond issue to build a new aquatic center. It passed, approximately 75% yes!

The aquatic center is something that Ames desperately needs. We have a couple of swimming pools now, but they don’t have the slides, toys, etc. When some daycares take kids swimming, they travel to one of two small towns close to Ames, because they have newer, better pools. It’s unusual for people to go from a bigger town to a much smaller one for services.

The best thing about getting this new aquatic center is that it will give the kids another option for something to do in the summer. In my mind, this is a good way to help keep them from getting into trouble.
