Quincy Park District puts redevelopment plans on hold

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

It will be at least another year before Park officials decide whether or not to redevelop the Wavering Aquatic Center. 

The reason is because of low attendance last summer.  According to pool financial figures, the Aquatic Center brought in $80,873 in 2012.  In 2011, the amount was $94,972. 

Quincy Park District Executive Director Ed Seger said the city is waiting to redevelop because they want to make a sound business decision and not invest money in a pool that isn't drawing customers. 

"We want to know what is the need in the community and how does what we do impact the other providers of Aquatic Services. We're not looking to compete with a service that is already provided economically someone else," Seger said.

The Quincy Park District is still figuring out whether to expand Wavering into a larger facility or keep it small like Indian Mounds.
