Save Our Swimming Pool In Jellico
We, the citizens of Campbell County and surrounding areas, petition the state to allocate funds to repair and reopen the pool at Indian Mountain State Park
The town of Jellico is a small Appalachian town that has suffered great financial depression due to a lack of unemployment, poor physical health, and drug abuse. One of the great tourism draws of the town is Indian Mountain State Park. Unfortunately in 2013 TDEC closed the swimming pool. Opening up the pool at Indian Mountain State Park will greatly benefit the town both financially as additional campers that are drawn to the park will spend money at local business and will also offer a place for the people of the town to spend time with their families, teach children how to swim, celebrate special occasions, exercise to improve health, and fill the free time of the summer with a constructive and positive alternative.
I demand that the TN State Legislatures allocate funds to repair and reopen the swimming pool at Indian Mountain State Park.
