Round Rock school district officials are set Thursday to discuss the results of a feasibility survey conducted to gauge voters’ support of a possible district aquatic center.
According to survey results posted on the meeting’s agenda, about 47 percent of people surveyed said they would “somewhat support” an aquatic center for students to exercise, learn, train and compete in swimming and diving.
About 79 percent said they would be “somewhat or very likely” to support a partnership with the YMCA and city of Round Rock to build and run a larger aquatic center to share costs and increase community access.
When asked if they would support a district bond, about 76 percent of those surveyed said they were “for/lean more toward” support.
In July, city officials floated the idea of a multimillion-dollar indoor swim center. Ten acres of land has already been pledged for the effort, which calls for a cooperative agreement between the city, school district and Chasco Family YMCA. The size of the center, its day-to-day operating costs and its funding are still under discussion.
