A plan to create what could become the first recreation center in the country designed to comply with Muslim religious beliefs is gaining steam in the Twin Cities.
The proposal for a $48 million Muslim Youth and Recreation Center comes from Somali Youth Action of Minnesota, a new nonprofit organization working to reduce youth violence.
Early sketches of the project reveal separate swimming pools for men and women, separate exercise rooms, an indoor soccer field and a large multi-purpose room for weddings and other events.
The group hasn't purchased land for the proposed center and is just starting to form a fundraising committee.
"We're going to go after it ... and we're going to hope that the local community and donors and foundations respond," said Matthew Palombo, secretary of Somali Youth Action (SYA). "If they do, then it will move forward."

how much will this cost taxpayers?
More than I’ll be willing to cough up......
Idiot libtard ELCA lutherans are to blame for this............
Somali and “safe” are not words normally in a complete thought.
How old do kids have to be in Minnesota to handle acid and explosives, will a simple parental waiver be sufficient?
Maybe Sen Frankin can help me on this issue, and Keith Ellinson.
So next we will be creating a safe place for blacks ... Didn’t the Jim Crow Democrats used to call this segregation?
From who exactly are we trying to make the safe place safe from?
If one taxpayer dollar is spent on a “muslim-compliant” facility, there should be hell to pay.
Good luck with that.....
Well, technically, it’s not a “Mosque”, so I am certain that there will be a movement to utilize tax funds, for the sake of the children....
Hmmm, where do most anti-American nonprofits get there funding from? Even if comes from Soros types, they still get reimbursed out our pocketbooks and wallets. (Think two billion to Venezuela to drill for oil!)
IAC, it seems to me that the logical choice for such a "recreation" center would be Gitmo. I would fully support the billions of funding to expand it accordingly....
Get rid of them all.
>> how much will this cost taxpayers?
Better not be one thin dime.
Everything with them is we need our own this and that....
They are just creating their own parallel society in America just as Muslims are doing in the UK.
Muslim immigration was a huge mistake from the get go.
The city will obviously give them tax free status, the city will fix the sidewalks and roads if their needed and other things.
probably the same place all those Muslim schools and mosques are getting funds in the US: Saudi Arabia
How about we create a safe space for them in a Christian church where they can learn a civilized religion!?
