The Impact of Spellerberg

May 19, 2014, 7:45 AM by Stephanie Gregory

The Impact of Spellerberg
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The pool at Embe in Downtown Sioux Falls is nearly always being used. Two people that often end up in the pool are Maryland Boese and water aerobics instructor Karen Noonan.

"I just love the idea of getting the exercise and the camaraderie. Everyone here is my friend and it has an incentive to get up every morning and swim," Boese said.

Even with the multimillion dollar Spellerberg Pool project now a reality, these swimmers say they will stay where they have always swam, but for others it gives them more options.

"I think it's great because it gives people the opportunity to have choices," Noonan said.

"Whenever that kind of change happens there are fallouts of that and there are things that do change and we do expect to see some impact in our pool," Embe CEO Laurie Knutson said.

Even through there may be some impact, Knutson says she doesn't expect too much.

"The use of our pool will maybe change a little bit as a result, but the demand does not concern us from the standpoint that it's going to sit empty," Knutson said.

With the growing interest in aquatics, Knutson believes the new public indoor pool will be a nice addition to the Sioux Falls community.

"I think in a community like Sioux Falls there is continued growth and continued and that's very exciting to see things like that coming around," Knutson said.

Lots of people use Embe's facility, including members of Embe, the YMCA, and Great Life.
