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.
"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."
"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!"
"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!
