Richland Kiwanis to Hear Pros and Cons of Aquatic Center

PASCO, Wash.- Supporters and critics of the proposed aquatic center will air their views at upcoming meetings of the Richland Kiwanis.

The $35,000,000 aquatic complex would be built off Sandifur Parkway in Pasco. It would be open year-round and include indoor and outdoor pools and waterslides,

Voters in Kennewick, Richland, and Pasco vote next month on whether to raise their sales tax by one-tenth of one-percent to pay for it.

Kennewick city councilman Don Britain will explain the economic benefits of the aquatic center at Wednesday's Kiwanis meeting at the Richland Shilo Inn.

The following Wednesday, July 31, former Kennewick city councilman Vic Epperly will argue why voters should vote it down.

Both meetings start at noon and are open to the public. For more information or to make reservations for the lunch, call 492-4111.

The Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau and the Regional Chamber of Commerce support the aquatic center.
