Win/Win here and Thank You Geneva Park District and Shodeen Family. Geneva has needed a lap pool forever. Now the swim teams can have their meets without closing us out from enjoying Sunset pool. Indoor pools are far too expensive to run and are rarely used. Plus no matter what, they always smell bad. Most would rather swim in summer or head to warmer climates for a winter dip rather than visit a petri dish.

Don't comment when you don't know what you're talking about. This is only a win for the Shodeen family, which gets a nice tax write off, while trying to close out the rest of Mill Creek and get out of town. The GPD now gets to pay for the additional staffing, maintenance, and insurance of another outdoor pool. The pool itself is nothing special either. Dpalz, do you know which pools hardly get used? Ones that are closed for 9 months out of the year. Geneva residents (and our high school) deserve an indoor pool. Take a visit to Aurora's Vaughn Center in the winter, and see if it's being used:(http://www.foxvalleyparkdistrict.org/facilities/aquatics/vaughan-aquatic-center/ Or Elgin's: http://cityofelgin.org/index.aspx?NID=284 Our school district prides itself on excellence, but doesn't have a pool for the high school. High school pools have been a standard amenity for many years now. At the very least, Geneva should have a high school pool that is for both student and resident use. I know Marmion, West Chicago, South Elgin, St. Charles North and East get very good use out of theirs. Having a year round pool for water exercise and safety is invaluable to a community. But when Labor Day rolls around, Geneva resident will have to go elsewhere. It's a shame.

win/win? Geneva picks up the maintenance and insurance costs for an aging pool located in the heart of a development miles from town? Hmmm.
