Our Board of Directors

El Distrito de Recreación Soledad-Mission es un distrito especial del condado de Monterey. Recibe una parte de los impuestos a la propiedad pagados por los propietarios al condado. Las evaluaciones de impuestos a la propiedad son $ 0.17 por cada $ 100 pagados. Esta evaluación no ha cambiado desde la creación del Distrito en 1962. Estos fondos se destinan a los costos operativos asociados con el Distrito. Permitir que los costos del programa se mantengan bajos.

El Distrito es guiado por una junta directiva voluntaria y reporta a la oficina de Supervisores del Condado. La administradora del distrito es la directora ejecutiva, Frances Bengtson.

El Distrito de Recreación fue fundado en 1962. Durante 12 años, la Junta fundadora recaudó dinero, donaciones y ofreció su tiempo y recursos para que se construyera la piscina cubierta Soledad de 25 metros en 570 Walker Dr. en Soledad.

Durante los siguientes 15 años, el Distrito de Recreación abrió la piscina todos los veranos, brindó lecciones de natación, campamentos diurnos y noches de cine. En los años 80, la Piscina se convirtió en la principal actividad del Distrito, el desafío fiscal de operar una piscina comunitaria bajo techo envió otros programas comunitarios a la tajadera.

La piscina siempre fue una atracción durante el verano, y en 2000 la piscina Soledad abrió durante todo el año por primera vez. En 2001, comenzaron a surgir nuevos programas, programas como campamento diurno de verano, tenis, golf de primer tee, atletismo y películas en el parque. Durante los siguientes 7 años, el Distrito de Recreación pasó de ser una organización en números rojos a una organización en ascenso. En 2008, se completó una renovación completa de la sala de la piscina después de mucho trabajo arduo en nombre de la Junta Directiva y luego de la Directora Ejecutiva, Stacey Wilson.

La desaceleración de la economía afectó directamente al Distrito de Recreación, reduciendo los fondos operativos vitales. Sin embargo, al mantener un servicio de calidad, mantener bajos los costos del programa y mantener una visión constante, el Distrito de Recreación ha aumentado la participación en el programa en casi todas las categorías. ¡Visítenos y vea si hay algo para usted!
