North Natomas is getting its aquatics center.
The Sacramento City Council on Tuesday voted to approve $14.4 million in funding for the long-awaited North Natomas Community Center and Aquatic Complex.
Sacramento-based Otto Construction plans to break ground on the complex within the next 30 days, said Councilwoman Angelique Ashby, who represents North Natomas and has spearheaded the project. The complex will be finished in the winter of 2020-21,Â a city staff report said.
The project will be funded with a loan from the cityâ€™s water fund, with about $457,000 paid in interest, a city staff report said. Money in the water fund comes from fees on water customers, development fees and other water-related fees the city charges.
