Aquatic center gets $100,000, hotel gets OK

LAP drive has collected all but $500,000 in pledgesBy Greg MasséPost Independent StaffGLENWOOD SPRINGS – A $100,000 check was handed over to the city Thursday to be put toward the city’s new aquatic center. The check was presented by Sherri Scrubi, president of the Two Rivers Community Foundation. Meanwhile, former City Councilwoman Mary Steinbrecher said the organizers of the pool fund-raiser – called the Let’s All Pledge drive – are looking at making a plaque that lists all donors’ names.”Where we would like to put it is on the little wall near the climbing wall,” she said. The aquatic center, which is being built onto the side of the Community Center on Midland Avenue, is scheduled to be open by Veterans Day in November. So far, the LAP fund-raiser has collected $1.3 million of its $1.8 million in pledges, she said. In other business, City Council:• Approved all necessary permits and variances to allow a new hotel to be built at the base of the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park tram. • Discussed a new way to charge fees at the Community Center. Although the item was tabled until the next meeting, the general idea is to charge one fee that covers all amenities at the center.Contact Greg Massé: 945-8515, ext.
