Still No Decision on Opening CP Pool

The Recreation Commission met Thursday, June 18 to discuss the status of Community Park (CP) Pool for 2020 but has yet to make a final decision on whether to reopen the pool, which has been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“A great deal of feedback was provided from pool patrons, local health officials, recreation staff and elected officials,” reads a statement. “After a lengthy discussion, it was decided to meet again early next week to resume the dialogue in hopes of finding a solution that can strike a reasonable balance between the public health, logistical, and financial intricacies of operating the CP Pool under the revised state Department of Health restrictions this summer. If a balance can be struck that addresses the key concerns, CP Pool is still on schedule to open no later than July 15, 2020.”
