We, the citizens of Fort Collins, ask that you reinstate plans for indoor leisure and lap pools in the Southeast Recreation and Arts Center. Reasons for removing these and other popular features contravene the City Plan's own Community and Neighborhood Livability vision for a high quality built environment with "vital and appealing activity centers and destinations throughout the city." Furthermore,adding these features back conforms with the City Plan's High Performing Community vision by making recreational opportunities more "inclusive and accessible to all people," regardless of where they live.
As an avid swimmer and fan of Fort Collins, it is a little embarrassing how far Fort Collins is behind other Front Range cities in Aquatics facilities, especially seeing first hand how the City's pools are falling apart, tons of deferred maintenance, woefully over-scheduled, the high schools don't have their own pools, etc. Swimming is a fantastic sport and family activity, and there is a huge supply/demand imbalance in Fort Collins between the number of swimmers vs. swimming facilities.
The Harmony Corridor has one of the highest concentrations of primary jobs. Give them somewhere to workout during lunch breaks, don't build more meeting spaces.
We need another pool in Fort Collins, Swimming is huge here and we have no pool space for Club and HS Loveland has pools at all the High schools we need this.
