According to the last census numbers the city of New Albany has nearly 5,800 children between the ages of 5 and 17. Over the last several years the activities that are available to our youth have dwindled. I believe that if a state of the art facility is proposed and a good site is picked then people will be proud to come there. Maybe in a few years we can see another Olympic swimmer emerge from New Albany.
