The board chair of the Grand Valley Recreation Center says the slumping economy is making now a better time for them to build.
With the cost of building materials and labor going down the price tag on building the center is also going down. Last time they looked at the numbers it was going to cost around 28 million dollars, but board chair of the center, Sally Schaefer says that they are hoping that number is down to about 25 million now.
The Grand Valley Recreation Center will have everything from an indoor warm water pool to walking tracks and dance floors. Something they are excited to have all in the same place.
The facility will support itself after it's built, but they are looking to build it with the help from city sales tax. If the economy take a upward turn and they are welcomed on the ballot by the city they are hoping to have it on the 2010 November ballot.
