Grand Junction leadership decided the future of Orchard Mesa Pool behind closed doors

KKCO: The fate of the Orchard Mesa Pool has seemingly been decided behind closed doors.

Our newsroom submitted an CORA request through email on Dec. 21, 2022. We received emails between city, county, and district officials on Dec. 23, 2022 that tell a different story than what Grand Junction Mayor Anna Stout is saying.

KKCO 11 News has watched the status of the Orchard Mesa Pool closely from both a community and governmental perspective. At a city council meeting on December 21, 2022, Stout said the discussion of the pool was not about closure, but more of a “community feedback session” to see what can be done to keep the pool operating per certain terms.

“We are currently in negotiations to define the roles and responsibilities of each party in an effort to keep the pool open under certain terms for a defined period of time.” Stout said at the time.
