A Greenwood city board wants to take another look at where a proposed $10 million aquatic center should be built.
The redevelopment commission unanimously voted Tuesday to add a new pool to a list of projects that can be paid for with tax-increment financing, or TIF dollars.
But the board balked at immediately agreeing to a plan to put the swimming hole in Freedom Park on the city’s southwest side.
Redevelopment commission members said they wanted to further discuss the pool’s location and to investigate putting it in Craig Park in the Old Town instead. A more central location potentially could contribute more to the city’s economic development by strengthening the city’s core, giving Greenwood a stronger sense of identity and improving its reputation, redevelopment commission vice president Garnet Vaughan said.
