Gus Young Pool meeting
BATON ROUGE- A Baton Rouge neighborhood is voicing concerns about the closing of a historic community landmark. Council woman C. Denise Marcelle is inviting people to join the fight to save the Gus Young pool.
The pool was once a hot-spot for people in its low-income neighborhood, but the last few years it was open, attendance dropped steadily. The pool has been closed for years due to mounting maintenance costs and low attendance. Now, BREC wants to see something else done with the lot.
Efforts to save the pool will be discussed at a public meeting Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Community Center in Baton Rouge.
