OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - The future of four Overland Park, Kan., city pools is unclear.
The City Advisory Council is recommending Roe, Marty, Blue Jacket and Stonegate pools be closed.
According to the council's report, it is because some pools are seeing a decline in attendance, while repairs to the others would cost too much.
The council said instead of six pools, there would be three regional pools with upgrades like big slides and lazy rivers.
The new centers would include Young Pool, Tomahawk Ridge Aquatic Center and a new center that would be built on West 151st Street.
Residents had their first chance to weigh in on the proposal Thursday night at Matt Ross Community Center.
Any possible closures would likely not happen until sometime in 2013.
