    Re: Waukee Residents-Vote YES on new water park

    How far away would this be from the Valley View facility that's already located in Dallas County, but considered part of West Des Moines?

    Yes by all means please vote for more taxes. Especially the way the economy is. I just dont get people wanting to pay more taxes.

    Re: Waukee Residents-Vote YES on new water park

    The three-pool design recommended by a committee of residents would cost an estimated $7.9 million to build, and the bonds would be paid off with a property tax increase. The company that designed the aquatic center estimates that taxes would increase by about $8.52 per month for the owner of a $200,000 house.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Unlike federal taxes the citizens of waukee might actually see some benefit from the money?

    Waukee has needed its own outdoor pool for a long, long time.

    If there is money to be made why doesn't someone come along and build one for profit?

    Have to agree. How many people live in Waukee proper now, 12k, 14k? Add to that a large number of people in Urbandale or Clive that would live closer to this than other pools, and that is a lot of potential use. The town has no public pool or aquatic center of any sort. How many cities of that size or larger in Iowa don't have any kind of public pool?

    The problem is that pool still charges waukee residents as non residents since it is in West Des Moines. Waukee does need its own pool. I don't want my taxes to go up either. Waukee needs this badly.

    Do you live in Waukee dave or do you just like complaining about taxes and trying to bring others down? Question (and a serious one at that), you ever been on a water slide? What about a diving board? You ever had a bad time on either? Sure, you'll land on your belly or back once or twice and that hurts, but looking back you'll laugh and think of what a great time you had. This isnt about a "liberal agenda" to tax the american people more, its about making a community better so even more people will want to live in one of the fastest growing communities in Iowa.

    In this case, it would be for a new water park in Waukee. Some are willing to pay slightly more in taxes to finance a water park and will vote yes. What about this scenario do you not get?

    Water Park are great for any community, Ankeny Just completed their 2nd city aquatic center as the first one was to small for the growing community, hopefully the city of waukee will plan for the future as well as the present and build a park that will last the community for the next 20 years or so.
