SwimCityUSA, the St. Charles Park District and the City of St. Charles have entered into a unique partnership, a true public/private partnership designed to bring tremendous impact to St. Charles, the Tri-Cities area, Kane County and Illinois.
In short, both parties have expertise in certain areas, and in combining for the pursuit of a common cause we will accomplish what, independently, we could not.
The SwimCItyUSA Board of Directors is made up of local business people dedicated to making an impact on the area. We will bring business and market expertise to the planning of an aquatics facility beyond what any government agency could provide. We will also act as the primary fundraising arm of the project in the search for tax-neutral capital revenue.
The St. Charles Park District was the obvious partner for this vision. With decades of aquatics operations and programming expertise behind them they are the local leader in providing aquatic opportunities to the public. Operating two major outdoor aquatics facilities, Otter Cove and Swanson Pool, the addition of an indoor space to the existing assets of the Park District makes exceptional sense.
We are also very proud that in 2016 the City of St. Charles endorsed the project and publicly stated their support.
