The citizen group fighting against an indoor pool at Spellerberg Park is halting its petition drive until more details about the proposed Sanford facility are available.
Public Pool Partners said last week it would collect signatures to block construction of an indoor pool at Spellerberg Park. And Friday, Sanford Health said it would study if the indoor pool could be constructed at the Sanford Sports Complex.
“The indoor pool facility is an important investment for Sioux Falls, and it is more important to get it done right than getting it done right now,” John Matthius, spokesman for Public Pool Partners, said.
Sanford has 50 acres available for development. Chief Operating Officer, Nate White told KSFY News.
On Tuesday, the Sioux Falls City Council will hear the second reading of a proposal to add $11.1 million to this year's budget to help build a new indoor pool at Spellerberg.
