Save Adie Knox Herman Pool

218 Signatures Goal: 100,000

We hereby petition Council of The Corporation of the City of Windsor to reconsider the decision to close the Adie Knox Herman (AKH) swimming pool and approve its continued operation for the following reasons: 1. The city needs a community pool that serves the needs of its residents. The new aquatic complex may satisfy the needs of competitive swimmers and host international competitions but it does not satisfy the needs of the community. Do not sacrifice the wants and needs of our community to create an international identity. 2. Adie Knox Herman,s pool is near the Senior Centre located at Wyandotte Street & McEwan Avenue and it serves the City's many senior citizens who reside throughout the City (not just the west end) by providing fitness and social services that include aqua fitness classes. 3. We have the pool and it is well used. Listen to your ratepayers and do not take it away from them. We will be happy to meet with you at your convenience. The Save Adie Knox Herman Pool Committee Contact Persons: Doug Peddle 519-735-7456 or Rene Jacques 519-944-3566

    There is no reason why Adie Knox Herman (AKH) should be closed down. The whole purpose of constructing the facility in the first place was to offer the west side residence, seniors, adults, teens and young children a fun, safe and convenient place to enjoy health and recreational activities. Closing down Adie Knox would be a huge mistake. It would not only be putting people out of work who are already employed there but take away the staple of the community. This building is a historical place that was built in the early 1970's for the people on the west side from Adie Knox herself. Read the will mayor! This building is owned by the taxpayers not you! How can you close down a facility that does not belong to you in the first place? Mayor your project is a selfish and criminal act on your behalf. People living on the west side do not have the time, funds or transportation to relocate to an area that is more expensive and has no parking to accomodate its members. In addition, the only reason why you built that establishment was to bring in more money from a population of swimmers that would push out the ability for windsor rites to swim. I do not see any reason why we should all be forced to go to this new water park downtown when windsor already has so many other already established parks and rec centers. Adie Knox is the only one on the west side that offers all the amenities needed for it's seniors, adults, teens, and children in one location. I guarentee, if Adie Knox is shut down, I for one will not attend this new center with any of my family or friends. In fact I will start a petition to boycott it.Shame on you mayor for trying to force assimilation on your west side community. I dont believe keeping adie knox open will have any effect on your new pool erected downtown. Keep ADIE KNOX HERMAN (AKH) open!!!
