What are the benefits to the Liberty residents?

Beyond the access to additional programming and the economic benefits this will bring to our community, Liberty residents will receive a discounted membership to both the Liberty Community Center and Liberty Activity Center. Seniors will continue to have a special reduced rate. In addition, Clay County provides a grant for senior memberships and a number of insurance companies cover the cost for senior memberships to community centers. There will always be at least one unprogrammed basketball court for pickup play and community use.
