Emery County to build new senior center and swimming complex and expand golf course

The Utah Permanent Community Impact Board approved $1.3 million in supplemental grants last week for the new senior center at Green River and swimming complex in Castle Dale.

The 11-member board also approved a $1.5 million grant and $1.5 million zero-interest loan to be repaid in five years for street, curb, gutter, sewer and water improvements in the Castle Valley Special Service District. Eight cities will benefit: Emery, Ferron, Orangeville, Castle Dale, Huntington, Cleveland, Clawson and Elmo.

Also approved last Thursday was $1.4 million in grant money and a $600,000 zero-interest loan to expand the Ferron Millsite Golf Course from nine to 18 holes.

Most of the projects are already underway. Improvements to the golf course will begin in early Spring.

Emery County is evolving from an energy-based economy to one more reliant on recreation and tourism, said CIB board member and Emery County Commissioner Drew Sitterud. "These projects will enrich our community and add more diversity to our economic base."

The Community Impact Board awards grants and low-interest loans to mostly rural communities impacted by mining and the extraction of oil and gas on federal land. The money is used to plan, build and maintain infrastructure and public buildings, from bridges and roads to fire stations.

The program is managed by the Division of Housing and Community Development under the Utah Department of Community and Culture.
