A Matter of URGENCY
Integration of this 50-meter pool is timely because the Mason Manta Rays are competing on the world stage. The clock is running, and it’s time to secure private funding to close the budget gap on development of the entire Mason Municipal Aquatic Center.
There are only a handful of long-course pools in Southwestern Ohio. Most are at universities and unavailable for youth and high school training. None are within a 30-minute drive of Mason. The City of Mason offers a prime, drivable location between Cincinnati and Dayton with plenty of hotels, restaurants, and amenities.
This complex will not only immediately address the region’s high demand for aquatic sports but enhance Southwestern Ohio’s reputation nationally as a hot-spot for competitive swimming.
It all translates into significant Manta Ray membership growth, as well as large, recurring, revenue-producing events and facilities leasing.
