The De Pere Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department board will meet next week Thursday to discuss what they heard last night at a special fact finding session, and what they would like to recommend to the city council.
Dozens of people turned out last night at a special meeting of the Board of Park Commissioners in De Pere to talk about the future of the city’s two pools.
Earlier this year the City Council decided to close both of the pools replacing the west side pool with an Aquatic center and the east side pool with a splash pad.
Kelley Quakkelaar lives on the east side. She says kids going from Legion pool on the east side to the west side would have to cross a roundabout.
The Parks Commission can’t override the city council’s decision to close the pools and build the Aquatic Center but they can ask the council to reconsider.
