Before Allen Community College trustees commit to a new recreation center, they might consider how such an effort could help strengthen the relationship between the college and its surrounding communities.
After all, county property owners help support the two-year college, which levies a 19.874-mill tax levy. For the owner of a home appraised at $75,000, thats about $175 a year in taxes to ACC.
More importantly, major investments like these dont happen often, and theres a wonderful opportunity here for some visioning and partnering with city and county leaders to create a project that truly benefits the area as a whole.
