Voter Approved Indoor/Outdoor Aquatic Facility
The voters of the Pasco Public Facilities District voted on Proposition No. 1 imposing a 2/10 of 1% Sales & Use Tax for the purpose of funding an Aquatics Facility and Competition Pool during a special election held in April 2022. The PPFD Ballet Measure was approved and certified by the Franklin County Auditor in May 2022.
The collection of the Sales & Use Tax commenced on January 1, 2023. The PPFD Board intends to allocate funds from the voter approved Sales & Use Tax consistent with RCW 82.12.048 to fund the building and operations of an Aquatics Facility and, in Phase 2, a competition pool.
Past Aquatic Facility Discussion and Relevant Documents
The PFD Board had been studying the possibility of a local aquatic facility for the last few years; a change in state law (which occurred in 2019) was required for the PPFD to proceed with a local proposal.
