The Skaneateles Community Center (SCC) recently received a $100,000 grant from the Onondaga County Office of Economic Development to finance in part a capital improvement project at the SCC known as the “New Growth Project.”
The New Growth Project consists of several upgrades to the building and site designed to facilitate the health and wellness mission of the SCC, and also expand SCC’s significant, positive economic impact on the region.
“The board of trustees deeply appreciates the bold vision and leadership of County Executive Ryan McMahon and the dedication of Julie Abbott, our representative in the county legislature,” SCC Trustee Chairman Bill Marquardt said. “This grant will help the Community Center continue to make a major, quantifiable impact on local employment and economic activity. As the destination of a regional athletic competitions throughout the year, we look forward to hosting teams, players, coaches, and spectators from outside Onondaga County who contribute to the local economy by spending money on food, lodging, retail, and gasoline, among other things.”
The Skaneateles Community Center includes two state-of-the-art skating rinks, a gymnasium, a fitness center, exercise and spin rooms, childcare space, all-purpose rooms and the Mary H. Soderberg Aquatic Center which contains an eight lane competition pool with diving board, a zero-entry leisure pool, a two-story water slide with plunge pool, a waterworks playground and a spa jacuzzi.
