I love the idea of having a new pool in the community. I think this is great for the children in the community. They will also have handicap accessible wheelchairs for those who need it. I believe this could bring potential revenue to the community as well. I will be voting YES to the pool!!

I can't afford taxes as it is, so no new pool for me.

The pool idea is a dumn one. why raise our taxes for somthing these kids really dont want, and the ones that goes swimming our the kids who's parents told to get out of the house so they do not have to deal woth them. Give them summer jobs instead of us paying for them to lay around and get into troulbe during the summer

Well several things I disagree with. I work with youth daily and they absolutely want a pool for themselves and siblings. Also they will raise taxes for either this or something else so why not something for our youth. Plus those youth who are delinquents and get in trouble will do so regardless if there is a pool or not so why not attempt to occupy their time. Plus why punish all youth when statistical there is a small % of them who get in trouble. Plus it is typically youth who worked at the pool so it actually creates jobs. Lastly I have so many memories from the pool and it was a huge part of our childhood! I can only hope my children experience that as well.
