Dear Fellow North County Residents,

Vote Yes for NCRD. The question is, what is YES ?

YES is Daycare for children, after school care for kids of working parents and summer camps and activities for all our youth. NCRD also rents space to a preschool.

Yes is the owner, manager and caretaker for the Rex Champ Ball Field next to the Manzanita Light house.

Yes is the owner, manager and Caretaker for our Pickle Ball Courts.

YES is the Performing Arts Center for North County. With tremendous community support, an old school auditorium that was used for storage was turned into a first class performing arts center that brings music and talent to our community. It also gives local talent a wonderful stage on which to perform.

Yes is a Fitness center which offers:
Classes such as Spinning, Pilates, Tone and Sculpt, Functional Fitness for Seniors, Tai Chi, Stretch and Balance, Cuban Salsa, 8 different types of Yoga classes and much more. A strength training room, a cardio room and a stretch room.

Yes is the Aquatics Center which offers recreation and open swim, an American Red Cross certified learn-to-swim school program, lap swimming, aqua aerobics, water walking and more.

Yes is Activities for Adults such as Fiber Arts Group, Book Club, Artists Group, Field trips, outings and events.

Yes is scholarships available for any and all programs for those needing financial assistance.

Yes is the support NCRD gives all of North County by providing space for activities such as Flu/COVID immunization clinics, private functions such as the MuddNick Dinner and is available to all for rent, if a larger space is needed.

YES will not–will NOT–increase taxes. The tax rate remains the same. It is exactly what it was 5 years, 10 years and 15 years ago.

Yes is NOT for the new pool. The funding for the Pool is completely separate from funds raised by this Vote.

Yes is for all the above programs and operational costs.

Vote YES for the NCRD 5-year Tax Levy, our community can not afford to lose current programs and classes at NCRD.

Respectfully submitted,
