GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX)–Grand Junction Parks and Recreation hosted another workshop on Tuesday, July 19th. The last workshop that was hosted focused on the location of the proposed rec center–but the focus this time was on funding.
A chunk of the rec center’s funding will come from revenues on cannabis sales tax–but that won’t cover the entire cost; the other piece of that puzzle is the question. Three potential sources of funding for the rec center could be a small sales tax, property tax, or a tax on nicotine products. The benefits and drawbacks of each were discussed, and are also available on the rec center summary.
Size and amenities the rec center will offer were also a point of discussion. Parks and rec’s presentation lays out plans for a 65,000 square-feet or an 83,000 square-feet building. Each size would offer similar amenities.
