MEDFORD, Ore. – During a meeting Thursday, the Medford City Council discussed a potential new aquatics center. And by the sounds of it, it would be a major project.
Currently, Jackson Pool is the city’s only public pool.
Their new plans include a new indoor and outdoor pool area, with a lazy river along with eight basketball courts that can be converted into an event space.
Several efforts have been made to get funding for a new pool in past years but none have come to fruition.
Medford Parks and Recreation says the majority of the public wants a pool, but the question of funding led each effort to be rejected by voters.
If funding for this latest proposal is approved, construction would be completed in about three years.
