A group of citizens is beginning the process to ask the city and county to build an indoor aquatic complex. The county probably couldn't contribute financially, but could give land on County Home Road.

It will probably be a community pool, with the city, county, BOE among others could contribute.

The summer swim league had 700 participants this year; year-round swimming club had 270 members. J.H. Rose, D.H. Conley and South Central high schools also have competitive swim teams. Several other high schools that have expressed interest in swim teams but they have been told no because there isn’t any more (competitive) space.

They would like a four-pool complex. Ideally, an outdoor recreational pool with beach-like access, two different styles of indoor competitive pools and an indoor warm water pool.

A similarly designed “bare-bones” complex built in Huntersville cost between $7 million and $8 million

Jan B. Murphy with Murphy & Bunch CPAs, PA prepared a revenue statement for the organization which said competitions at the swim center could generate at least $660,000 annually for the community


I know the year-round swim teams use Minges pool, but that is beyond capacity. Sounds like a good idea

For a county that extracts as much money from it's citizens as it does, this one sure doesn't do much. All we ever see are schools, a couple of trash transfer stations and building inspections.

They don't provide any parks, snow plowing, garbage collection or street lights.

A 71,183-square-foot, four-story Residence Inn by Marriott with about 95 rooms will have a groundbreaking around February right near the new VA Clinic. The extended-stay hotel will have appliances including a refrigerator, microwave and oven. Besides beds, each room will have a sleeper sofa. Amenities include an outdoor swimming pool and putting green.

Speaking about the VA Clinic, groundbreaking will occur on January 12. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2014. It is a two-story, 116,000-sqft building (current one is 18,473-sqft). The current clinic has primary care, mental health, prosthetics and physical therapy, while the new one will offer audiology, cardiology, chemotherapy, dermatology, gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, optometry and otolaryngologist. Current clinic serves 8k, new one will serve 20k.

i agree that the new directional signs are great. They look very professional & help with the appearance of the city IMO. Should help the parents or students every year when ECU brings in a new class of freshmen. They are always lost.

It is prime, but I've heard of nothing. Sad that the Ale House and Mellow Mushroom didn't choose it. And I think (hope) Winslows is the beginning of the renaissance downtown, with that type of business.

if they can get more Winslow's type places downtown, it would be a nice place to go.

I'm surprised Winslow's has stayed as busy as it has. Every time I've been there the food was just awful.

I've thought winslows food was great the service was good, great beer selections and the prices are reasonable and it's nice inside and out. Not surprising at all to me
