  • Plans for the proposed site of the new Community Center building and Aquatic Park located at 9801 Dollarway Road, topped the agenda during a recent meeting of the White Hall Advertising & Promotion Commission held at City Hall.
    In addition, White Hall Mayor Noel Foster also discussed
    the estimated costs as well as the additional funding by means of Bonds to go ahead and build the Community Center and Aquatic park.  He also indicated that a Special Election would be necessary for the approval of the issuance of the Bonds to build the project. A motion was made by Commissioner David Beck and seconded by Commissioner James Pittillo before carrying unanimously for the recommendation of the Special Bond Election to be sent to the City Council for their consideration for up to 4.5 Million Dollar Bonds for the Community Center and Aquatic Park. A motion was also made that would grant Mayor Foster the authority to continue working with the engineers and architects on the site and planning of the Community Center and Aquatic Park. According to Foster, city officials have looked at several facilities across the state. “The architect and engineers are finalizing proposed designs, said Foster. We hope to present those plans for final approval to the Advertising and Promotion Commission soon.”
    Others attending the meeting were Chairman James Morgan, Commission Members Ken Smith, David Beck, Wayne Rasor, and James Pittillo. Mayor Noel Foster, City Clerk/Treasurer Ellen Welch and Executive Assistant Sandy Truman.
    The property for the Community Center and Aquatic Park, which is located at 9801 Dollarway Road has been cleared. “It is our hope that construction will begin later this year,” Foster concludes.
