Utah-based Clyde Com­pa­nies to do­nate $ 2 mil­lion to Springville City Re­cre­ation Cen­ter

Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

Springville City Coun­cil voted unan­i­mously to ac­cept and ap­prove a do­na­tion agree­ment with Orem based Clyde Com­pa­nies dur­ing the June 6, 2017 coun­cil meet­ing. The $2 mil­lion do­na­tion will be used for ad­di­tional im­prove­ments of the Springville Aquatic Cen­ter which is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion. Im­prove­ments will in­clude an out­door pool, an in­door aquat­ics score­board and video dis­play, public art and other im­prove­ments.

In ad­di­tion to ac­cept­ing the do­na­tion, the Springville City Coun­cil voted to name the new fa­cil­ity the Clyde Re­cre­ation Cen­ter. The Clyde Re­cre­ation Cen­ter is slated to open to the public in about six months.

“This do­na­tion by Clyde Com­pa­nies is a way for our busi­ness to give back to the city of Springville and the com­mu­nity that has sup­ported our busi­nesses since my grand­fa­ther, W.W. Clyde, started here in Springville over 90 years ago,” said Wil­ford Clyde, Chair­man and CEO of Clyde Com­pa­nies, who also serves as mayor of Springville. “We are hon­ored to con­tinue the Clyde mis­sion of Build­ing a Bet­ter Com­mu­nity, and feel con­fi­dent that this do­na­tion will leave a last­ing im­pact in our com­mu­nity for many years.”

“The city of Springville is so pleased to re­ceive this gen­er­ous do­na­tion from Clyde Com­pa­nies,” said Troy Fitzger­ald, Springville City Ad­min­is­tra­tor. “The ad­di­tions to the Clyde Re­cre­ation Cen­ter would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the do­na­tion and it will make the fa­cil­ity even bet­ter.”

The Clyde Re­cre­ation Cen­ter is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion and is sched­uled for com­ple­tion at the end of 2017. More in­for­ma­tion on the fa­cil­ity is avail­able at Springville.org.
