Sioux Falls Voters Decide On An Indoor Pool

Sioux Falls residents want an indoor public pool at Spellerberg Park. John Matthius  is part of the "Save Spellerberg" group, who wanted an outdoor pool constructed and initiated a challenge to the city’s plans.

"We had the opportunity to bring this to a public vote, this important public decision and we’re glad the voters had a chance to weigh in. While our efforts and assertions didn’t carry the vote today, we’re really pleased to have been part of the democratic process," Matthius says.

Supporters of the indoor aquatic center say it gives citizens a year round place to swim and that it could also open the door for future year round swimming activities.
