(CHADRON)-The city of Chadron may very well have year-round swimming accessibility in the not-too-far-away future. A variety of individuals are converging to form a committee that will further explore the possibilities of covering and renovating the current swimming pool, including cost estimates and grant monies that may be available. A committee that had been formed in a recent Dawes County Joint Planning Session, entitled the Swimming Pool Enclosure Enhancement and Development Option committee, or SPEEDO for short, has been brainstorming ideas. They, along with city manager Wayne Anderson and Dale Grant from Chadron State College, felt the project needed city backing in order to get it officially moving forward.
Terry Owen, who serves on the SPEEDO committee, says in addition to pool renovations, the group will discuss other possible amenities as well.

Owen says having new, innovative, and fun things to do at the pool will be a good way to help people stay active year-round.

Other functions he says would be a place for swim teams to train and host events and also a place for lap swimming, among other things. City manager Wayne Anderson says he is excited to see the project inching a bit closer to actuality.

At their meeting Monday night, the city council reached a consensus that Anderson form a new committee consisting of a few SPEEDO committee members, a couple of city employees, including Anderson, and one or two representatives from CSC. The committee will then work to provide more information to the council by their meeting in mid-December.
