We were disturbed to learn of people agitating to restrict pool membership to New Canaan residents.

Surely, there is a number of memberships that balances healthy economics without overcrowding. It makes sense to give New Canaanites first crack at memberships since we are the community that built the pool. If however, New Canaanites don't use the capacity, we don't understand the logic of not accepting others who want to join.

We also don't endorse the message such exclusionary policies give our children.
