SL Council Supports Community Rec Center

A resolution supporting plans for a Storm Lake recreation project was approved Monday afternoon by the city council.

Misty Sanderson and Karen Keenan of the Storm Lake Recreation Project Committee gave a presentation to the council. Keenan noted a rec center is needed for teenagers and youth development… and would provide a facility for recreation, education, and leisure activities. They said over 15-hundred people have completed an on-line survey… with 77-percent of respondents saying daycare facilities are needed in Storm Lake, and 81-percent support for a community pool.

Sanderson said they have received many letters of support… and read a portion of a letter from Tyson Pork.

The council approved a resolution that supports further exploration of a recreation center concept in Storm Lake.
