The prospect of a swimming pool in Parry Sound is drawing more interest from community organizations.

Both the Near North District School Board and the YMCA are reaching out to area municipalities regarding the recreation centre/pool complex.

In its letter to the seven Parry Sound area mayors, the board of education says it hopes to tie together planning of the pool complex with the design of its new Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 school.

Simcoe/Muskoka YMCA CEO Rob Armstrong says the Y can be a partner in making a public swimming pool a reality for Parry Sound and the surrounding communities.

Both McKellar and Seguin town councils will hear a deputation Monday from Peter Istvan of the Ad-Hoc Wellness & Pool Recreation Committee regarding the pool.
