At the request of its residents, and a strong grassroots effort, the Santaquin City Council is sponsoring a proposed Recreation and Aquatics Center on the November 2019 ballot.

This 66,000 square foot facility would include an indoor lap pool, kids pool area, one college regulation sized court and three additional smaller pickup courts configured for basketball, volleyball and pickleball.

Also to be included in the proposed recreation and aquatics center would be an indoor track, indoor soccer area with drop down netting for batting cages.

Additionally, it will also have a large 250-person banquet hall that can be used for the community’s seniors, veterans, recreational programming and for rental by the public for weddings and parties.

Lastly, it will have child care facilities to make it convenient for parents to exercise onsite.

This $12 million project would remodel the old Ercanbrack Fruit Packing shed at 580 West Main Street, providing a much-needed economic boost and beautification of Santaquin’s western boundary.

The public is invited to take a tour of the facility on Oct. 5th at 9am. To learn more, go to Santaquin.org.(Submitted to Serve Daily by Benjamin Reeves.)
