New recreation center is on its way


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Roswell city employees, elected officials and members of the local Caprock youth swim team commemorate the start of construction on the recreation and aquatic center at the Cielo Grande Recreation Area on West College Boulevard during a Saturday afternoon event. The swim team members released balloons after local officials used their ceremonial shovels to pitch some soil.

The construction award was announced in September on the $20 million project, financed by bonds to be repaid by increases in gross receipts taxes. The project is expected to be completed by fall 2018.

“This is an asset for this entire community,” said Mayor Dennis Kintigh. “This is something that can make this a better place for ourselves, for our children and for our grandchildren.” Officials visible in the photo are, from left, Councilor Natasha Mackey, Mayor Kintigh, Councilor Jeanine Best, City Manager Joe Neeb and City Councilor Steve Henderson.
