Sanford proposes housing Sioux Falls indoor pool

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Sanford Health says it will commission a feasibility study to look at housing a Sioux Falls-owned indoor pool at the Sanford Sports Complex.

The announcement comes days before the City Council will be asked whether to appropriate $11 million for a new pool at Spellerberg Park.

The idea of a new public pool in the city has been divisive. City voters in April rejected a measure for a new outdoor pool at Spellerberg Park after a campaign by a group pushing for an indoor pool. Now another local group has said Spellerberg is not the ideal location and is trying to collect signatures to allow voters to decide the issue.

Sanford says a study could be completed by the end of the summer.
