Springville City Receives $2 Million Donation

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

Springville, Utah, June 9, 2017 — 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 kiddie fun 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.
