Thank you President Trump for building us a new pool!

Thank you!

3:01 If Trump knew of the number of foreigners that worked on the pool ICE would have stopped the project from being completed. Bernie 2020

But this is all about this community, it has nothing to do with Washington. In fact, Washington doesn’t give two turds about Coudersport. This project was completed because people in the community Democrats,Republicans, and Independents give a shit about their town. So stop, and look around at what can happen when we stop bitching and start doing.

Exactly 5:29, some women do not wear 2 ps bathing suits, I guess I won’t be at the pool, I’d like to know why only 2 pc bathing suits ?

Anonymous said...

Who in the world made these rules?? Its better to wear a two piece suit than a one piece???I can tell you I will not be wearing a two piece and I will get thanks for this believe me. So as a grandmother I'm not going to be able to go and swim?? I would really like answers!!!!!! on this....Again, please let us know who is making these rules?

Anonymous said...

Please. Who in the hell came up with these rules. Please identify yourself and let all the normal people know what was going on inside your head. This is unbelievable!!!!!!

People are going to be SWIMMING, you wear bathing suits (in public, anyway) when you swim. The male version of a swim suit doesn't include a shirt!!! The female version of swim wear includes one piece suits as well as two piece suits. I certainly hope your statement was just something stupid you felt like posting. Signed - Janene McAteer

Unknown said...

Yes i am refering to myself, but there are people that prefer one piece suits.

Janene said...

I certainly hope that whoever wrote the comment about what to wear when swimming was just being stupid. Male swim attire is shorts/swim trunks. Female swim attire is one or two piece bathing suits!! People will be swimming, not skate boarding!! Signed - Janene McAteer (this anonymous crap is ridiculous!) as is the statement telling people what they are allowed to wear!!!

The first post that gives information about attire for the pool is incorrect. Someone seems to think it is funny to give misinformation. Men do not have to wear tank tops and women can wear a one or two-piece suit. Some people like to just cause problems and rumors that aren't necessary. Please remove the first post which has inaccurate information.

Men need to be covered up, but women do not?! Wth! I sure hope this was a misprint and not actually how the rules will go!

I want so badly to complain about this project as an outsider looking in and former Coudy resident, but I'll just keep it simple by stating that there were a lot of really bad decisions made in regards to this project. Anyways, good job to the community for raising the funds. I know volunteers put a lot of time and effort into making it happen. I would suggest starting a fund for the next one 15 years from now that is indoors for year round recreation and has adequate parking.

Probably the most intelligent statment made.

It reads: There will be no change using the pool !!!

10:29 I would love to hear all the bad decisions that were made in regards to the project.
I would also love to hear how you would pay for and maintain an indoor recreation center.
You do realize that the indoor pool facility would cost $50,000.00 - $100,000.00 /year to run, maintain, and staff. Not to mention the millions of dollars it would take to build that center.
You do realize that the project had feasibility studies, engineers, and pool design engineer do to all the regulation that needed to be complied with to meet government standards. You understand that this is the plan those experts believe made the most financial sense, long term, for the community.
You do realize that this project was not thrown together last minute and that many individuals provided input that was put into the final design.
You do realize that those few individuals that fundraised for this project do not plan to fundraise for 15yrs.
You do realize that this project started 10yrs ago and that you had a decade to help in doing this to your standard, but you didn’t.
Speaking up now for anyone that has negative things to say is shameful and not helpful, as we now have a safe place for our children to learn how to swim and spend their summers, which was always the goal.
Goal accomplished thanks to all that made this day possible.

It's really a shame that even though so much hard work went into planning, fundraising, and constructing this pool, there are still members of our county who have something negative to say.

We're lucky to have had a dedicated team who stepped up and got things done. Not to mention the countless supporters of all ages who offered their time and donations. This success should be seen as a chance to celebrate the strength of our county and our community!

You can choose to look at the bad things in life, or you can give more of your appreciation and energy to what is good. The same concept applies here.

Also for the love of God, the comment sharing those ridiculous rules on attire is fake. Let's spend more of our time building people up for a change. It's a much more enjoyable way to live.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard for our pool! I can't wait to take a dip!

The small number of dill dines who are going negative on here do not reflect the silent majority that appreciate this. Don't pay them any attention because they are the CAVE People (Citizen Against Virtually Everything).

Some of you need to get outside more and breath some oxygen.

7:01:00 You state that making negative comments now is "shameful and not helpful." However, that is not true. Maybe some kid will read this someday and learn how to look at and solve problems using different perspectives. It would have been nice to have a say in it and it is unfortunate I didn't hear about it until construction had already begun. That is life. Ultimatly, it wont affect me. I dont live there and I dont plan on returning. You obviously took great offense to my opinion about the flaws of the pool project. I will say that those points you make are obvious and I hope that engineering, architecture, ADA compliance etc... were all taken into consideration or the board would have been greatly negligent. I also hope that there was writing in the contract to reimbures the community or discount the total price due the "im assuming" late delivery of the pool. Think of it like this. The public pool lost revenue for an entire year by not being open during the three key months of summer. That is a lot of money down the drain. It's like a crab fisherman not having their boat running during crab season. As for the 50K - 100k yearly operating expenses for an indoor pool. You are probably in the ball park. I think those costs are a lot more achievable than you think, even with a burough population of only about 2600. For example, an indoor pool would be open an entire year. That is revenue for an entire year. Using general numbers lets say the pool recieves 20 general visitors a day and charges 3 dollars per visitor, that is approximatley 22K. The pool could also sell full year passes. If it sold 100 passes at a discout of $250 for the year, thats another 25K. Add aquatic programs such as excercise, dive certs, cpr training, swim lessons etc... it could net another 20K. Finally since its indoors, recreational space could be added allowing for event rentals, snack areas, public wifi and it could be considered a Community Center brining in that last amount for your 100k operating expenses. Note that none of that included money from donations, grants, loans, or increasing property taxes which are options as well. As far as footing the bill for actually building it... Well, the money spent on this renovation would have been a good start for a down payment. Also, interestingly enough, the US Department of Agriculture offers Rural Community Development Grants of upto 250K and loans with inteterst rates less than 4.5% for things such as community centers. I wonder if that was applied for or looked into? Now to backtrack a bit, let me get back to my point of not returning to that area. We all wish that small town charm is just as great as it's made out to be in the movies. It is just not the case. There was so little for teenagers and kids to do except for get into trouble. Having a community center for year round clean recreation would be a tremendous improvement. Yes, there are outdoor activities, but sometimes you just want something a little more low key. I hope that the town council keeps a good record of lessons learned from this project.
