A community center? Just wait a few minutes now

A 21,000-square-foot community center in Goldendale?

First reaction: cool. The myth that there’s nothing to do in Goldendale is dying quickly and deservedly in recent years, as a glance at The Sentinel’s calendar of events will readily reveal. A community center with just about everything in it but a squash court—or is that coming later?—would be the final nail in the coffin of that lame lament.

But wait a minute. It’ll cost $4.2 million to build? Let’s check our collective petty cash drawer. Nope, can’t do it.

But wait another minute. Most of it would come from public and private grants? Other people’s money? Ah, that’s better.

But hold on just one more second there. A million to come from general obligation bonds? We like bonding, but this kind is really sticky when it carries $90,000 payments.

But wait again. Could it actually happen? We could be back to cool if the funding actually makes sense and comes about.
