Breaking ground on the Russel & Evelyn Fahl Aquatics Center in Columbia City

Years of planning and preparation to replace the existing Burnworth Pool in Columbia City culminated in a groundbreaking ceremony for the Russel & Evelyn Fahl Aquatics Center. Approximately 60- plus community members attended the ceremony to mark the start of the over $4.2 million project, expected to be completed for grand opening on Memorial Day weekend next year. There to share some words for the occasion was the Columbia City Mayor Ryan Daniel, who spoke of how the project will be a gem for the community, but also an exciting incentive for new families to settle in the region.
