Your 2 Cents: Oklahoma City Growth Accelerating

Posted: Updated:

The city council has decided to build the new whitewater rapids course, as designed, despite a new price tag that's over budget.

I think this rapids course can really separate us from a lot of other cities, so I say bravo to the council. Let's do it right.

Patrick agreed:

"How many other cities can boast superb Olympic Training sites?"

And Wes added:

"Closest competition white water facilities are Colorado and, I think, Indiana. If you build it, they will come."

Laura says thumbs down:

"I think it is a waste of time and money."

Several said use the money for streets or storm shelters… Can't, voters earmarked it for specific Maps projects.

Debby says of the rapids course:

"I love the idea! I think it will be a hit."

From Tiffany:

"Another way we can add something fun that also promotes physical activity! I already want to go!"

But Jason said:

"What else is there to do down town after u get all wet?? I'm out!"

Cheryl's fired up:

"I am angry so many folks said no because they wouldn't use! How selfish! I am 64 and fluffy and my husband is 66! We started last year joining the master kayak and dragon boat league!"

From Angie:

"I would definitely use it and I would take guests to use it as well."

Finally, from Rachel in Missouri:

"Something like this would make me want to make the drive with my family to go to the rapids!
