North Side Pool might open with state funds from MYCAP

Published: Mon, May 24, 2010 @ 4:36 p.m.

A nonprofit organization will provide about $300,000 in state funds to allow Youngstown to open its North Side Pool and continue to provide summer youth recreation programs.

Jason Whitehead, director of the park and recreation commission and the mayor’s chief of staff, told The Vindicator today that the Mahoning-Youngstown Community Action Partnership has agreed to use the state money for the pool and the programs.

Wilma Torres, MYCAP’s director of planning and placement, said the organization is waiting for the city to submit a plan, expected by Friday. The proposal must be approved by from the state, she said.

If all goes well, Whitehead said the pool would open and the programs would begin June 16 and run to Aug. 11.

Facing a budget shortfall, the city eliminated funding for its pools — Borts Pool on the West Side will not open this year — and the youth programs.

HIV cannot be transmitted in a swimming pool. It is actually very difficult to keep it alive outside the human body.

We need to dump over a quarter of a million into letting these (fill in the blank) destroy even more property. What a complete waste of tax dollars. Of course those of us who work for a living will be called racist.

Just another example of a Tax & Spend waste of $300,000 that we don't have. It won't be long till the USA is doing it's economy Greek style.

Sad to hear Borts will not open again - it's a shame this old Westside landmark from my childhood won't be there for the kids from this side of town.
