Our View: Pool rebuild a needed step
The pool at DeKalb Park District’s Hopkins Pool is a community asset, but it’s an asset that has almost reached its expiration date.
DeKalb Park District officials have known this for years. They put forth a referendum in 2010 that asked people if they wanted the park district to borrow $15 million to make the pool bigger and better.
Voters said no by a 3 to 1 margin, and it’s unlikely that a couple of years of tepid economic growth have been enough to cause a seismic shift in public opinion.
