Oakland Mills to study pools

The Oakland Mills village board will sponsor a Columbia-wide meeting tonight to discuss alternative uses for neighborhood pools that have low attendance.

The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. in the Other Barn at 5851 Robert Oliver Place.

The Columbia Association has suggested new ideas -- such as converting some lesser used pools to adult-only and teen-ager-only pools -- to try to increase attendance and revenue. Residents of areas where the change was proposed objected recently, convincing the Columbia Council to put aside the issue for further study for the 1994-95 budget year.

It also has been proposed that certain hours be designated for adults, teen-agers or other demographic groups. Previously, the association has experimented with setting aside certain pools for corporate or club outings.

The 21 neighborhood pools lose money annually.
