An alternative site for a regional aquatic center has been identified, a Pasco official told the Tri-Cities Regional Public Facilities District board Wednesday night.
The site is between roads 68 and 100 and visible from the highway, said Gary Crutchfield, Pasco's city manager and chief administrative officer of the Pasco Public Facilities District. He said he couldn't provide much detail because a purchase agreement isn't finalized.
The board is moving toward presenting a sales tax increase to voters to pay for a project. Board members earlier this year selected an aquatic center at TRAC in Pasco as their first choice.
But then a majority of Franklin County commissioners voted to withdraw TRAC from the market, throwing a wrench in the plan.
A board committee is set to meet with Pasco PFD officials to talk more about costs in advance of the next board meeting in December. More detailed financial information is to be presented then.
