Sedona residents benefit from school-funded pool upgrades, making upkeep by the city of Sedona a viable option.

The Sedona-Oak Creek School District Governing Board met Monday, Dec. 3, to approve continuous city-run maintenance  operations at the Sedona Community Pool located in West Sedona. Board members approved an intergovernmental agreement for maintenance and Sedona City Council will be asked to approve it.The Sedona-Oak Creek School District Governing Board met for its regular meeting Monday, Dec. 3, to approve continuous city-run maintenance operations at the Sedona Community Pool.

Board members approved an intergovernmental agreement for maintenance at the pool during the recent meeting. Sedona City Council will be asked to approve the agreement during an upcoming council meeting.

“The school bond was used to pay for a lot of the facilities the community uses,” SOCSD Governing Board Vice President Zach Richardson said. “The school pool has become a community pool. There are quite a few facilities that the bond paid for and that’s one of them. The school built it and the city manages [it]. The school uses it for the swim team.”

Richardson said the school district uses the facility in the fall as well as the rest of the year. The pool is used by Sedona Red Rock High School’s swim team.

The pool was upgraded in 2010 and reopened to the public in 2011 as part of a $73 million SOCSD bond.

City of Sedona Recreation and Aquatics Supervisor Rachel Murdoch said city staff perform day to day operations at the pool. A recent bond, coordinated through the school district, was used to refurbish the facility.
