HistoryThe fifty-meter indoor Meyers Pool was funded by the last of the 1974 bond money and was dedicated February 12, 1979. North Jeffco operates and maintains the pool, although the facility is owned by the City of Arvada. The pool was named "Meyers Pool," for George Meyers (April 27, 1924-May 5, 1977). He devoted his life to the education of children through his vocation as a teacher and vice principal of Arvada Senior High School. He actively participated in North Jeffco programs by supervising and teaching the ski program and by supervising the North Jeffco Swimming Pool. He was also a member of the City of Arvada Planning Commission since 1963 and chairman of that commission since 1964.
