On the Ballot: Waterford Community Center Proposal

Waterford, MI- Voters in Waterford will vote on Nov.6 if they would like to fund a new community center.  Information about the proposal is below, taken from the Waterford Township website:

On November 6, 2018, Waterford voters  will  be able to vote on a bond proposal to build , equip, and furnish  a new Community Center.  If approved, the Township would be authorized to borrow/issue bonds for up to Thirty Million Dollars for no more than 21 years,  with the estimated levy to pay for the bonds in the first year estimated to be 0.84 mills. The proposed new Community Center will  provide  services for  all our residents from youth  sports  and  adult  fitness to senior  activities  on the Township campus .

The site of the proposed new Community Center is on property the Township already owns on Civic Center Drive behind the Township Hall. The property overlooks Clam Lake and is of sufficient size to locate the Community Center with adjoining green space and views of the lake.

The proposed Community Center will focus on space for the activities that surveys and comments of our residents have indicated they would like offered such as fitness, dance, event rentals, meeting rentals; and senior, adult and youth leisure activities.  Our current Recreation Center has issues that will be expensive to fix and has  high utility bills due to an inefficient HVAC system  and  poor insulation and windows. Let’s look at the facts:

 

 

Election Day is Nov. 6, 2018.
