Greensboro, NC-- Grimsley High School's pool was closed after damage from a storm. The pool and the building that houses it are in such bad shape they've been closed since December 2011.

The city of Greensboro, which operated and funded upkeep on the pool, is rethinking whether or not they should continue to do so.

During a meeting in October of 2012, a city spokesman said it'll cost about $4-5 million for full rehabilitation -- and he adds the city just doesn't have the money to make that happen. So parks and recreation staff were considering recommending the city council approve spending almost $400,000 to demolish the pool and turn it in to green space.

That plan was put on hold as city leaders and the Grimsley community try to come to a decision that's best for everyone involved. 

Tonight's meeting was held in Grimsley's media center was much of the same debate. The community wants the city to spend the money to repair and renovate the pool facility and city leaders said they are examining all options.
