Raytown Parks and Recreation Department Offers 3 Tips for a Worry-Free Summer

 1.      Spend time with family and friends enjoying your Raytown Parks-see a free movie, enjoy a new sport; tennis, basketball, biking, walking, fishing, or skateboarding or BMX for the more adventurous. Visit the new tree arboretum at Henry Kritser Park located at 75th and Woodson to learn more about native trees or to explore unusual species of trees.

2.      Want to cool off this summer? Super Splash USA water park remains one of the most economical recreation values in the metro. Super Splash continues to be one or Raytown’s best attractions after 20 years.

3.      Visit www.raytownparks.com  for park maps and locations or to learn more about upcoming programs and special events.

Park Sales Tax Renewal-August 3, 2010

      The benefits of parks and recreation services affect the individual, the community, the environment and the local economy. Parks increase property values, provide a sense of community, enhance social interaction and improve the health and well-being of residents. More importantly, parks promote the constructive use of leisure time for youth thereby helping to reduce criminal activity.

      On Tuesday, August 3, 2010, the voters of Raytown will decide on the renewal of an existing 1/8 cent park/storm water sales tax. If approved by voters, this sales tax will continue to dedicate 1/8 cent to local parks/storm water control and it will remain in effect for 10 years.

      The sales tax will maintain the current sales tax rate in Raytown-there will be no tax increase. The current 1/8 cent park/storm water sales tax is set to expire March 31, 2011. If approved by voters, this sales tax renewal will take effect April 1, 2011.

      Additionally, the park/storm water sales tax Citizen Oversight Committee appointed by the Board of Alderman will continue to monitor the expenditures of this sales tax and will provide public reports to the Board of Alderman every three months. Spending is also monitored by the Raytown Park Board.  

Please vote on August 3.
