Body
BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:
Staff has worked on proposed pricing for rental rates and membership rates at Das Rec based on information from the business plan.

City Council was shown proposed rates at the February Financial Workshop and at the joint City Council/Parks and Recreation Advisory Board Workshop in March 2017. On both occasions, general direction was provided to staff to establish rates based on "Option C" which was predicted to yield a 90% cost recovery.

In order to maintain a slightly more conservative approach, Staff proposes slightly increasing monthly rates for adults, youth & seniors by $2.00. The family membership would be set as a 50% discount from the individual rates (2 adults + 2 youth - 50%).

It is also proposed to offer discounts on annual rates during the opening of the facility including:
* Founding Members: 10% discount on annual rate if signed up prior to building opening
* Grand Opening Rate: 5% discount on annual rate if signed up within first three months of building opening
* These special rates would be valid for up to the first two years of membership.
