Is Byron Getting a New Aquatic Center?
A group in Byron has big, wet plans for the city. They call themselves the Pool Committee and they are proposing a $9-million dollar outdoor aquatic center. The project would allow for a max capacity of nearly 800 people and would include waterslides, a lazy river, a lap pool, a spray pad, a bathhouse and more. They also have a $12-million dollar proposal to have a portion of the complex indoors.
Depending on the final cost and price point of your home, it could increase the average homeowner's taxes anywhere from $170-$600 a year.
The City of Byron shared the estimates on their Facebook page and residents are torn. Some are backing the plan, while others are saying the cost is too much.
