Pickerington indoor soccer complex gets green light
#1 Jul 15, 2011
The hope is for young people to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. To set a community standard for years to come, not to mention the tax dollar generated by such a facility.

A nice facility that is being done without tax money and will provide a benefit to the community for several years down the road.

How in the world can the Pickerington Local School District afford to lease space in the soccer fields and other sporting facilities if they have problems keeping the schools going is my question?
I would like to know how it can be done without taxpayers money?

Probably an increase of player participation fees. This equates to parents will pay one way or the other.

We are so excited about the new complex. It should bring some revenue to the area and give the kids a place to play! Hoorah!

It's a shame that it has taken so long to get the green light from the city. They seem tobe very unfriendly to new things being built that could help the city and schools with more tax dollars coming in. All the time wasted over the past year this place could have been built alrady bringing tax money in.

From my understanding speaking with Building/Zoning, allot of the holdup was on the developer's end. They kept submitting plans that did not match the previous sets submitted. Can't blame the city for that one.
The last hurdle was to allow the developer to use a building material for the siding that would normally be considered sub-standard. The normal process needed to be followed to allow for a variance in the building requirements to allow for the siding they want to use for the back and sides of the building.
Glad things finally got worked out and we are back on track with this.
WHS76, why do you think it is not fiscally responsible for the district to lease space if needed rather than spend more taxpayer monies maybe building a facility? Soccer is big within allot of districts, including Pickerington, and getting bigger every year. Utilizing an existing facility at less cost vs building one themselves seems like the better path for the district to take, IMO.
