The Cascade Swim Center (CSC) opened in 1979 to accommodate an approximate population of around 6,500. The district currently serves a population of roughly 42,000 out of our two facilities, the Cascade Swim Center, and the RAPRD Activity Center.

The CSC is operating at capacity, and is serving a growing community with limited space and amenities. Having one body of water, limits the uses that can be accommodated, and restricts operable water temperatures. The leased Activity Center is temporary, as it is slated for destruction with the Odem-Medo expansion in 2022.

If the bond measure passes, a new facility would accommodate a wide variety of recreational, fitness, and therapeutic activities. The multi-use spaces of the new aquatic facilities would allow for warmer temperatures for children and seniors, while accommodating cooler temperatures at CSC, for fitness swimmers and competitive programs. If the bond and levy measures pass, the new recreation center would provide a variety of amenities for multiple, cross-generational activities, to occur.

 

If the bond measure passes, the potential amenities of the new facility would be:

-Warm water, multi use pool with zero depth entry, lazy river for recreation and resistance walking, water slide and play features, aquatic fitness/therapy accommodations, and warm water lap lanes.

-Multi-use gymnasium, with two full basketball courts that could be used for a variety of activities requiring indoor gym space, such as pickle ball, volley ball, etc.

-Raised, indoor track around gymnasium to accommodate year round walking and running.

- Group fitness room(s) for classes

-Cardio and weight equipment room.

-Multi-function room space for classes, music programs, art, cooking, STEM, CPR/FA training, and public meeting space that could also be rented out for private events or meetings.

If the bond and levy measures pass, the new facility would be a comprehensive health, recreation, and wellness center that would be an accessible resource for the entire community, regardless of age, income or ability.

 

If the Bond and Levy Measures Pass:

Bond amount: $40 million.

Estimated individual tax impact:

Bond: $0.55 per $1000 of assessed value

If a property is assessed at an assessed value of $200,000 the property tax assessed on a monthly basis would be $9.17.

 

5 year Local Option Levy: $0.19 per $1000 of assessed value.

If a property is assessed at an assessed value of $200,000 the property tax assessed on a monthly basis would be $3.17.

 

If both the Bond and Levy passes and if a property is assessed at an assessed value of $200,000 the property tax assessed on a monthly basis would be $12.34.

 

If the Bond and Levy Measures Fail:

Bond:  Taxes for the bond will not be assessed.  The new facility would not be built. 

Levy:  Taxes for the levy would not be assessed and the district would continue to operate with the current tax rate.

If the bond passes and the levy fails the district may place the levy on a future ballot.

If the levy passes and the bond fails the district would not impose the levy.
