The result of this is that, now, the people in those communities no longer have an amenity which they did not seem to particularly desire to begin with, but have now grown accustomed to. The result--further dependence on the government to provide you with what you can't afford and therefore probably shouldn't have to begin with (similar to the poor incentives that allowed too many low income families to purchase homes). In an interesting twist, the private sector is now being asked to purchase and privatize these pools. I suspect however that if the pools have not turned a profit to this point due to too many subsidized members, that the communities in which they have been placed are not profitable for a market priced pool to attempt to operate within.
If community pools are a hot commodity these days, perhaps the city would have been wiser to let the communities sponsor and build them. Perhaps then they would be poised for profit in areas where the members can afford to pay for the privilege, rather than simply creating another drain on tax dollars. Private pools are a popular addition in many communities where the members pay certain fees in order to have them, use them, and keep them maintained. It seems sensible that if they are paying for their own pools and usage, then they shouldn't have to pay for someone else's a concept that could be applied to all city planning and ventures.
