Group requests to keep outdated Colburn Pool open for another summer

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Colburn Pool in Green Bay was on the budget chopping block last year because of serious maintenance issues and dwindling business, but a private group is trying to save the pool. 

The city council extended the life of the Olympic sized pool for this summer, and a committee recently recommended doing that again for next summer baring any costly issues. 

“As long as it’s operational, I see no reason the Mayor and the council couldn’t support keeping it open so that we can formulate a plan for its long term replacement,” said Alderman Jesse Burnette, who represents the district that Colburn Pool is in.

A private group is working on fundraising to cover the costs of designing a new pool, and also looking to raise some of the funds to pay help pay for construction. 

Burnette says they are looking for the city council to set a fundraising goal and timeline that Friends of Colburn Park Pool could meet and the city would bond for the rest.
