Sierra Nevada Community Aquatics, Inc. (SNCA) needs your assistance.
In their Wednesday, January 24th, 10 AM Meeting the Reno City Council will be considering a staff recommendation to make a commitment to moving the development of the Moana Springs Aquatics Complex forward. (
Agenda Item J. 1
We would like your help in providing positive constructive comments reminding the Council Members that new aquatics centers are desperately needed in the Truckee Meadows and that there is a high level of support for a new Moana Pool.
SNCA has identified potential donors to raise the vast majority of the capital to build the pool. In order to successfully have the funds committed we need the assurance that the City of Reno wants the pool and will agree to operate it upon successful completion of a final capital campaign and construction. Through this creative partnership the Citizens of Reno will receive a gift of brand new modern aquatic center. Even when considering the ongoing cost to operate the facility 30 years into the future, the donated aquatic center would have a net positive value of approximately $9 Million dollars. This truly is a win-win situation in which the City can restore a level of service they provided for decades (prior to the Moana closure) with a net positive financial impact to the Citizens.
Following are several ways in which you can make sure your support is heard:
the Reno City Council to respectfully request that the Council provide supportive direction to staff to move forward on options to construct a pool and at Moana Springs Park and agree to operate the facility upon successful construction.

The meeting (and public comment) begin at 10AM and will be held in the 1st Floor Council Chambers in the City of Reno Building at One East First Street.
