City of Lubbock Plans To Close Most Pools For Good After This Summer
Enjoy the municipal pools in Lubbock while you can, because if the proposed City of Lubbock budget passes, most of the pools will be closed for good.
This past Monday, the Lubbock City Council was presented with the 2023 proposed budget and among the items including in the budget is the future of the Lubbock pools. The plan moving forward is to close all municipal pools in Lubbock except for the pool located at Clapp Park. Instead of pouring money into pools that are in desperate need of costly repairs, the City of Lubbock will use $7.8 million dollars from the American Rescue Plan Act to replace the pools with three splash pads. Again, only Clapp Park would keep a pool.
No details on how long it would take to build the splash pads and where exactly they would be located, but it is easy to assume they would be located in the same parks that the pools are located in.
The Lubbock City Council will hold work sessions on the budget at 2:00 p.m. on both Wednesday and Thursday at Citizens Tower. All citizens are welcomed to show up.
The Lubbock City Council still must vote to approve the proposed budget.
