CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- Cedar City residents may not have a place to swim unless they approve a bond to pay for a new pool.

The $7 million bond would pay for an aquatic center that would become part of a recreation area that will include six baseball diamonds and a 10-acre reservoir complete with a beach and fish.

The city has a contract with Southern Utah University to use one of its pools, but that contract expires in 2010 and SUU plans to demolish the facility.

City Manager Ron Chandler says there is plenty of demand for a pool.

He says the entire center would cost $9.5 million. Iron County School District would contribute $1 million and the county would offer $1.25 million.
