Spur Swimming Pool sinks at Pepsi’s Refresh Everything Project

Posted on Thursday 3 June 2010

The Spur Swimming Pool has sunk at Pepi’s Refresh Everything Project. On Tuesday, June 1, I went to vote at http://www.refresheverything.com/ and couldn’t find the Spur Swimming Pool anywhere. So this morning I contacted Joyce Howze who was in charge of applying for the project on behalf of the City of Spur. Howze said that she went online to submit the application beginning at 11:00 p.m. May 31. She gave up finally at 2:00 a.m. June 1. She told me the project was rejected yet again by the website, so she is giving up. She considers the process too difficult and says it faces too much competition.

The City of Spur, though, is proceeding, by getting cost estimates on replacing the pool with a smaller one which could be built just south of the existing pool. In the meantime, I am working on putting together a page for the effort on Facebook. What I need in order to this, though, is any photos my readers may have of themselves or others taken at the Spur Swimming Pool. Can you help me out? If so, email them to me: cindi@thetexasspur.com
