Morehead Weighs City Pool Options

Athletic Business 2014

Morehead Councilman Tom Carew says the city is weighing several options now that it appears repairing the 40 year-old municipal swimming pool is cost prohibitive.

Among the possibilities, he says, is striking a deal with Morehead State University for use of its Olympic-style facility in the university’s Recreation and Wellness Center. However, he is quick to add that doesn’t seem to be an ideal choice.

“That pool at the university is really built for swimming to accommodate the folks that use that for the actual purpose of swimming as opposed to recreation and maybe what we need is more of a recreational pool.” –Tom Carew

Carew says Morehead will also explore building a new swimming pool at a different location.
