Why did the City of Liberty not include a competition pool in this plan?

Through several public input processes specific to Liberty Parks & Rec over the last several years, Liberty residents did not rate a competition pool as high of a priority as leisure aquatics. 

We understand that families with swimmers on high school swim teams are passionate about an indoor competition facility. Last year, Liberty Parks & Rec approached several community partners about collaborating on such facility. Each recognized the desire for a indoor competition pool, but non were able to offer any financial support at this point in time.  We anticipate having future conversations with community partners regarding construction of a competition pool.
