LDS Community Sinks Sunday Swimming
Salt Lake Tribune 16Mar00 D6
By Kristen Moulton: Salt Lake Tribune

Community values prevailed as the City Council went against the advice of its leisure-services board and voted 4-1 to keep the three year old city pool closed on Sundays. A letter signed by local residents asked the council to "spare them from one day of the pool's traffic, congestion and noise". A door-to-door poll of the community, conducted by Utah State Univ. Extension Service, found 62% wanted the pool closed one day during the week, and 90% of those people felt it should be closed on Sunday.

The opposing voices in the community do not feel that having the pool open for only nine hours on Saturday are sufficient to serve the community.
