To the Editor:
We have an important choice in the upcoming vote on the city indoor pool referendum. Do we want to continue to be at the back of the pack with an undersized and aging pool at our city's Recreation Center? Or do we want to move forward with the project to replace it with both a lap pool and a leisure pool with slide/therapy pool that residents of all ages will be able to enjoy
for generations to come?
As a community, we need to continue to look for ways to improve the quality of life of our residents. These projects help keep families in Mitchell, and they help attract new families to move here to live, work and play. They keep our community growing.
As an employer, we get to see firsthand what types of things are evaluated when a family is considering moving to Mitchell. They are looking for a safe community to raise their family. They are looking for a quality education for their kids.
They are trying to visualize themselves living in the community, which often involves looking into what types of activities are offered and what sort of facilities are available for exercise and fun. They need to be able to enjoy themselves in Mitchell if we hope to expect them to stay here
and be our neighbors for years to come.
Besides Mitchell, Miles City, Mont., is the only other Top 10 community in the five-state area of South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming and Montana that lacks a full-size indoor pool.
Lets work together to change that.
Please vote yes on Dec. 8 at the Corn Palace. Early voting has already begun, and you can do that at the City Hall Finance Office. Every vote matters-bring your friends.
