Turn out to help save the much-loved Orchard Mesa Pool at two important meetings this month

Citizens attend a meeting on 3/13 to discuss how to save the much loved and needed Orchard Mesa Pool.

The Save the Orchard Mesa Pool Committee asks everyone who wants to save the OM pool from destruction to mark their calendars and attend the next city council meetings about the pool, and wear blue to help show solidarity for saving the pool:

The next meeting is March Monday, 18th at 5:30 p.m. at the downtown fire station at 625 Ute Ave., right by the Grand Junction Police station. This is a listen-only meeting, but the Orchard Mesa community needs to show a big presence. All you need to do is show up and wear blue!

Then after that, on Wednesday, March 20 at Grand Junction City Hall, 250 N. 5th Street, at 5:30 p.m. The Committee needs a HUGE CROWD to attend this meeting because City Council may be voting on the fate of the pool at this meeting. The public can weigh in at this meeting.

People are needed to speak at the meeting. The main talking point will be to ask the City to accept the property, pool and gym from School District 51. “If you don’t want to speak, please just attend,” the Save the Pool Committee asks the community.  A city councilman told people concerned about the fate of the pool years ago that they need more people to turn out in support of the pool. They now have over 250 people signed up to support the pool, but they need people to come out and physically show support for saving the pool. So come on down and and make it a “pool party”!
