GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Local citizens are concerned if the Orchard Mesa Community Center Pool will close down. The old Orchard Mesa Middle School is set to be demolished in the spring. But what about the pool behind the existing building?
District 51 issued a statement: “No decisions have been finalized about pool operations, ownership, or next steps. More information will be released as it becomes available. The pool board does not meet in public session but will meet on Jan. 28, potentially to discuss future plans. Each entity cannot comment further since one cannot speak for all three of the partners.”
On Saturday, January 25th, local community members are hosting a 4 p.m. event at Eagle View Learning Center. At this event, individuals can sign a petition and drop off letters of concern to the city about losing the pool.
