City, Schools & Pools

  • From Dr. Bowers blog post: Community members meet to discuss pool funding

    The Worthington pool is nearing the end of its useful life.  The natatorium pool had a life expectancy of 30 years. We’re going on 43 years. The outdoor pools are potentially in worse condition.  An inspection shows that the North Pool is losing roughly 3,000 gallons of water per day and may be beyond repair. The Middle Pool and and South Pool are in better condition but don’t meet current standards.  The locker room facilities and concessions were built with 1950’s standards.  

    The question on the table is where do we go from here?  If Worthington is going to have a community pool, where will the funds come from to support it?  What role should the City of Worthington play and what role should the school district play?
