Need for Local Swimming Pool and/or Recreation Center

I am shocked to learn that the Carousel Swim Club charges $150 for an individual 3-month swim pass when you can go to the Sandusky water parks for a lot less money and a longer time period or to the Avon Lake pool for $35 (for the same 3 months) IF you are accompanied by a resident of Avon Lake!

Mayor Piskura says we don't need a local pool because we have the lake; however, some people don't care to have all the sand from the beach in their swimsuit, vehicle, and home, and prefer swimming laps or using the diving boards and/or water slides that a pool would provide.

Our community also needs indoor recreation at an affordable price, especially during the winter months! We came from a small community in Derby, KS that has a local recreation center where they charge students $30 for a three-month pass. You could purchase any three consecutive months you wanted, and as many passes a year as you wanted. Inside the rec center, there is a basketball court, 2 racquetball courts, a swimming pool, indoor track, fitness room full of all kinds of equipment, side rooms for aerobics classes, dancing, guitar lessons, etc. There is also an area just inside the entrance full of tables and chairs, a wide-screen TV, vending machines, etc. where students could wait for their ride to pick them up. Do you think this is something that is needed or even feasible in Sheffield Lake?

I think thats a great idea! We just moved here as well and I've been looking for a good one. I wish we had more happening here! I love the lake but there needs to be something more attractive.
