Papillion Community Rec Center

Postby HR Paperstacks » Mon Apr 11, 2016 12:54 pm

Papillion voters face decision: Is $45M community rec center worth half-cent boost in sales tax?
Hailey Konnath / World-Herald staff writer wrote:About 4 miles from the site of the proposed $125 million Nebraska Multisport Complex in La Vista, Papillion is planning its own $45 million community and recreation center.

But Papillion voters will decide whether to advance the project, which features an indoor pool, a lazy river, gymnasiums, outdoor fields, a youth center and a senior citizens center.

The May 10 ballot includes a proposal to raise the city’s sales tax to fund a bond measure to pay for the center. The City of Papillion wants to build at the Papillion Recreation Department’s current office at 1100 W. Lincoln St.


The 190,000-square-foot community center would include, among other features:
» An indoor pool and a lazy river
» Multiple gymnasiums
» An elevated walking track and an exercise facility
» Golf assessment
» Community meeting and banquet space
» Youth center
» Senior center
» Arts space
» Satellite library programming
» Space for a yet-to-be-determined community partnership
» Soccer and baseball/soccer fields
» Batting cages

I am not a resident but work in Papillion so I would be paying for this. I do not know why the city needs to spend $45 million on so many duplicate services that are already privately available. Seems like a case of "We can spend money we do not have, so lets build something"

Sounds like the residents voted in favor of increasing the sales tax by around 90 votes, with a few votes still to tally.

The facility is supposed to begin construction this summer and take approx 2 years.
