Why did you choose the Legion?
The site committee used aerial and on site review of various sites around the community. Location, size of property, ease of access for vehicles, walkers and individuals on bikes, safety and recreational potential of the surrounding area were all influences in arriving at the site for the project. The Village owned property at the north end of the village and next to the Legion property already showcased the sense of community and recreational activities. This would help to attract citizens and their families from a large geographic area to spend additional time in the same area enjoying swimming and water activities. The old pool site was attractive because of its close proximity to the school, but the size of usable land for the proposed pool project and parking were not adequate.
