It was opened nine months ago with city officials joining the school district to applaud an additional benefit: state-of-the-art facilities for an entire community with scarce recreational resources for a large population of young people. Despite that promise and with summer temperatures rising, the Olympic-sized swimming pool has been closed to the public.
