No Rate Increase for Community and Recreation Center Members
The Upper St. Clair's center has $750,000 in its capital fund.
There will be no rate increase this year for Upper St. Clair Community and Recreation Center members.
"Our feeling is to reward the residents and members for the success we have had," said Paul Besterman, director of recreation and leisure services.
The center's capital fund, which is used for ongoing repairs and maintenance, currently has $750,000 in it.
The recreation department shared a "wish list" of items with the Upper St. Clair commissioners that it may want to improve at the recreation center in the future. Major changes would be an expanded fitness center area and locker rooms, a new auxiliary gym space and expanded outdoor and indoor pool facility—including a warm water instructional pool.
"We're entering year four and want to make sure the demand is there (before making the improvements listed above)," Besterman said.
On the other hand, Besterman said the center wants to be sure it continues to be able to provide the service necessary for its growing membership.
The outdoor pool will open at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 26.
