Do We Need Another Public Swimming Pool In Bozeman? [POLL]
I was a lifeguard at both The Swim Center and The Bogert Pool while I attended college. I will always remember my first day at the outdoor pool, I was in a state of shock. I had been a lifeguard at home at the outdoor pool, and we had busy days – but nothing like a hot afternoon at the Bozeman outdoor pool.
Kids are waiting in line to get in as they open the doors, and it’s slammed with people until the minute it closes. I haven’t been to the pool in a long time, but every time I go by in the Summer it looks the same way.
According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, “Bozeman City Commissioners voted 4-1 to hire two outside firms to study the possibility of building a new pool, other recreational facilities or both.” What do you think Bozeman needs? A new pool? Should they build on to the current one? Enter your vote in the poll HERE and get your voice heard!
OH – and just a by the way – they are spending over $60,000 on this study. Thoughts on that?
