New Albany mayor requests Horseshoe funds for aquatic center, baseball fields

NEW ALBANY — Other funding sources

The aquatic center and Little League complex will also be presented to the city council and New Albany Redevelopment Commission for funding, Gahan said.

Private funds could also be raised to support the projects, he added.

“The city of New Albany, with the financial tools we have available to us, is in a strong position to move forward on both these projects,” Gahan said.

The administration will have direct talks with the redevelopment commission and city council about funding once more of the details of the projects are finalized, he continued.

McLaughlin said the council would be open to a dialogue with Gahan about footing a new Little League complex and aquatic center. With no outdoor public pool in New Albany, McLaughlin said the city has been “behind the times” on such quality-of-life projects.

“The community — we’re definitely due some recreational facilities,” he said.
