Sioux Falls voters overwhelmingly voted against another outdoor pool at Spellerberg Park.
About 71 percent of voters said 'no' to initiated measure 2.
A community activism group pushing for an indoor pool at the same site was elated at the election results.
"Sioux Falls has long needed a centrally located public indoor pool and it is refreshing to see that after years of debate, Sioux Falls voters agree," Margaret Sumption, Spellerberg neighborhood member and Community Swim 365 co-chair, said after the vote. "The voters have clearly indicated that they would rather see city funds spent on something that can be used year-round."
