Keep our 50m pool!

This petition had 2,407 supporters

As a resident of Tara I believe the Tara Memorial Pool that was built and funded by the citizens of Tara shire should be kept or replaced if irreparable with a 50m pool. Many people and families in our region use this to train as there is no 50 m pool in a 80-100k distance of Tara itself. Many people and their children travel a long way already to attend swimming club, swimming carnivals etc in Tara and adding another hour would likely make this redundant to them. We have many promising young athletes that train in and need a 50m pool to compete in. I believe making out pool 25m will see many opportunities lost in a community that already struggles to provide opportunity for our youth.

Our residents funded this pool and our current residents are receiving no consultation as to the current direction the pool is headed towards. At the very least residents concerns need to be heard and coommunity consultation take place.
