The wonderful change in my physical health and general well being, that I have experienced over the past two years, is directly attributable to regular use of our swimming pool. For many families, access to a quality swimming facility can be a reason to move to, or stay in Ketchikan. If we remodel a 30 year old pool, we still have a 30 year old facility. If we choose to remodel the existing facility:how long will we be without a pool here in Ketchikan????? Regardless of the optimistic projection, of the engineers, I would point to the Schoenbar remodel, or the 28 million dollar 4 year bypass project, as examples of the unpredictability of all remodels.
We are giving the bankers trillions, the defense contractors trillions and everyone else with their hand out billions. I would suggest we give ourselves a gift of a new, modern swimming facility. Let's vote for a new pool instead of being without a pool for who knows how long.
