CS Voters Not Likely to Consider New Natatorium

College Station voters most likely won’t be considering a new indoor aquatic center this November.

At the end of Tuesday night’s joint meeting of the school board and city council there was agreement to keep talking.

Superintendent Eddie Coulson says it won’t be recommended when the school board meets next week.

President Valerie Jochen told the council about the months of work that went into what’s expected to be an $83 million dollar request covering higher priorities.

One-third of a community committee gave a new natatorium the highest rating while two-thirds gave it the lowest, placing it towards the bottom of the overall list.

Mayor Pro-Tem Karl Mooney floated the idea of building an outdoor pool with bond money then enclose it with funds from the hotel occupancy tax.
