Forum on Proposed Fruita Rec Center Planned for Monday

On Monday, the public is invited to hear arguments both for and against the proposed Fruita rec center.

The forum will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Fruita Monument High School in the auditorium.

In April, supporters of the rec center failed to pass a ballot initiative to increase the sales and use tax one percent to fund the construction of the facility. Now they want to put the issue on the ballot again in November.

The Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce will facilitate the forum in which both sides will have a chance to speak and answer questions from the audience.
