Batavia City Recreation Center Bond (November 2010)
This measure was defeated
- YES 4,765 (41.81%)
- NO 6,424 (56.36%)
This measure sought approval of a $20 million bond which would be used to construct a new city recreation center. Although no complete plan for the center had been drawn up, ideas of businesses which would have gone in the center had been talked about. A gym, housing an indoor pool and track, had been agreed on. Opponents did not feel that public funds should be used to support businesses that are in competition with other local businesses. Officials noted that the bond would not raise taxes, just continue current tax rates.
The main proposed project was a lap pool for the new center, but opponents had noted that such a pool was not family friendly and due to incomplete plans, voters did not really know what they will be voting on. The lack of a plan was the main idea behind voting No on this measure.
