Sioux Falls, SD (KELO-AM) A new group has formed to oppose an indoor pool at Spellerberg Park in Sioux Falls, claiming it would make it tougher for veterans to access the V-A Medical Center, adjacent to the park.

Tom Muenster with 'Veterans for the VA' says a large year-round indoor facility would worsen an the already congested area around the Medical Center, and might even impact veterans parking spaces at the Center.

The group feels a smaller outdoor pool is more in keeping with the character of a neighborhood park.

Muenster urges voters to say 'Yes' in April to a new outdoor pool at Spellerberg.

Other community groups and many city officials, including Mayor Mike Huether support an indoor pool, saying it's long overdue and Spellerberg is centrally located. They say traffic studies show that there would be more traffic with an new outdoor facility than with an indoor pool.
