GREEN BAY (WLUK) - There are some new options for Green Bay's Colburn Pool.

Engineers presented four plans during a meeting a Franklin Middle School Thursday night.

Option one is a four-lane, 50 meter pool. Option two incorporates a children's play area.

A third option removes the pool all together, and replaces it with a community center.

At the meeting Thursday, engineers say those plans would stay within a $4 million price-tag.

A fourth option would be to repair the existing pool. That plan would cost $5.5 million.

The city council approved a plan last year to replace Colburn Pool. However, Mayor Jim Schmitt vetoed it, saying it would be too expensive.
