[ARCHIVED] CRC Proposed Expansion Project

The Town of Windsor is hosting several educational meetings/open houses in order to provide residents with information about the Community Recreation Center Proposed Expansion Project. Details of the project including studies and actions to date, floor plans, use patterns and timing can be found in the link below. Public meetings have been scheduled as follows:

• June 18, 2014, 9:00 am – 12 noon, Community Recreation Center, 250 N. 11th Street
• June 24, 2014, 6:00 – 7:00 pm, Community Recreation Center, 250 N. 11th Street
• July 9, 2014, 6:00 – 7:00 pm, Poudre Valley REA, 7649 REA Parkway
• July 22, 2014, 7:00 – 8:00 pm, Community Recreation Center, 250 N. 11th Street
• August 6, 2014, 6:00 – 7:00 pm, Community Recreation Center, 250 N. 11th Street

The Windsor Town Board is seeking input on a sales tax increase of 0.75% (or 3/4 of one cent) to fund the proposed expansion project. The sales tax equates to 7.5 cents per $10 for purchases made in Windsor. The proposal does not involve a property tax whatsoever, and would derive a portion of its revenue from non-residents.

The estimated cost of the project is $16.1 million, which includes site work, construction and other project costs.

Parks and recreation amenities provide many benefits to a community. They enhance property values; help attract and retain professionals and businesses; help promote healthy life choices and control healthcare costs; provide social interaction, and help keep seniors, family and kids connected. In other words, they improve overall quality of life.

Given the growing demand for indoor recreation programming and the many benefits of the project, as well as the fact that borrowing costs remain at historic lows, the Town Board believes this is the right time to tackle the Community Recreation Center expansion project. However, no formal action will be taken to place the proposed sales tax measure on the ballot until August 2014, providing time for our community to properly vet the proposal.
