Stop Multi-Gen Recreation Center

We, the undersigned Roanoke County taxpayers, continue to oppose the construction of a Multi Generational Recreation Center at Valley Point. The reasons why we oppose the rec center: 1. The project is too narrow and cannot be used to host tournaments. For example, the pool design is intentionally designed for only recreation. We must use private facilities to host swim meets. 2. The center will NOT create tax revenues 3. The money would be better spent improving our schools 4. The estimated $32 million is probably incorrect, the center will cost much more. 5. The facility competes with local businesses who create jobs and pay taxes. 6. No business case was created that indicates the number of visitors per month are needed to support the facility.
