Public Meeting set for Feb. 22 to discuss ideas for new aquatic facility
Citizens are invited to provide their input regarding a new aquatics facility by participating in a Public Meeting on Wednesday, February 22. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Joplin Athletic Complex, 3301 West 1st Street.

During the meeting, Water’s Edge, an aquatic facility engineering firm from Kansas City, Mo., will make a presentation on various options for the facility. Following this information, citizens are encouraged to participate in an interactive work session that will allow informal discussions on a one-to-one basis. All input will be gathered for the Parks and Recreation Board and Joplin City Council’s review.

Funding for the aquatic facility is available through the Parks and Stormwater Sales Tax renewal that Joplin voters passed in August 2011. The aquatic facility is proposed for a Memorial Day 2013 opening.
