11 cities including Blue Rapids, Clyde, Yates Center, and Moundridge are being chosen to receive federal grants to build swimming pools. The grants, awarded by the Department of Commerce, will help cities renovate or construct new facilities.
“One key strategy in economic development is making sure there is a high quality of life in communities,” said Commerce Secretary David Toland. “Swimming pools are a component to that quality of life, and that helps to retain existing residents as well as recruit new residents and businesses to those communities.”
Each city will match a portion of the federal funds, which were at least $750,000 each.
