Residents will have the chance to provide input Saturday on where they would like to see the two Morris Township pools in the next few years.
The Morris Township Parks and Recreation Department is holding two public meetings for residents and other members of the municipal pools from surrounding areas to offer suggestions or concerns about Ginty and Streeter pools, and also learn about the improvements that are already planned.
Township Director of Parks and Recreation Bill Foelsch said there are already repairs underway for the pools—which have both been around for 40 years—but officials want to get a sense for other things the public might be looking for.
"We're looking for the plan to help guide us over the next five to 10 years, to see what type of investments that would be supportive to the community,"
The two meetings on Saturday will first be at Streeter Pool from noon to 2 p.m., and then at Ginty Pool from 3 to 5 p.m. The meetings will be held at the pool arcade in each facility.
In the past several years, the pools have had minor improvements, such as new filters and lights, but nothing major.
Foelsch said he's already heard some public comment about adding a concession stand to Streeter Pool, and adding interactive facilities at both of the pools for kids.
