Fast Focus: What would you like to see in a Tri-Cities aquatics center? Big enough to attract events

May 5, 2013 

I think an aquatics center should be something that causes a draw into our community. We have multiple schools in the Tri-Cities that have swim teams, but if we had a center dedicated to competitive swimming, there may be a likelihood to hold state, regional or maybe even national events. Having people travel to our area would bring interest and income into the community. It would be a source of self-advertising.

We are more than Hanford. Maybe it is possible to have a diving area where we can establish new water sports to the area.

I think it would be a great addition to a wonderful area.
