There has been talk of a community center in Goshen for years, but when formal plans were announced in December 2012, the response seemed lukewarm at best and there was a perceived lack of trust in the process. We believe the two biggest concerns of community members are the proposed location and the estimated cost. The executive committee plans to further consider both in the months to come before a potential November vote. Good for them.
Again, we love the concept of this community center. We’re just not sure it’s the right plan at the right time at the right price. Therefore we have to continue to ask ourselves as taxpayers, “What do we want, what do we need and what can we can afford?” We’re grateful the community will have more opportunity to talk through this plan and arrive at a solution we all can live with.
