Mayor Ted Wheeler has announced plans to keep Columbia Pool open through June 2021!

Let’s celebrate and give recognition to our elected officials: Mayor Ted Wheeler made the budget decision, Commissioners Amanda Fritz and Chloe Eudaly supported funding the pool again this year and Commissioner Hardesty opposed cuts to funding last year. They all deserve our thanks — and they will remember it when we have to go to bat for the pool again.
