City council has granted property tax freedom to Nelson Youth Soccer’s operation of the former SoccerQuest facility.

“Youth soccer has done a really good job and is very valuable to this community,” councillor Robin Cherbo said in supporting the decision, which passed unanimously.

Youth soccer recently entered an arrangement to buy the indoor soccer facility with the help of a $350,000 city loan.

The value of the tax exemption is $5,300 for 2015.

Many other properties also have exemptions, including churches and non-profits such as the Kootenay Kids Society, Nelson CARES Society, Nelson Kiwanis, and West Kootenay Women’s Association.
