I urge Essentia to include a lap pool when it moves into the Younkers site at Miller Hill Mall ("Essentia moving fitness center to mall: New facility will be bigger, official says, but won't include a lap pool," Feb. 13).

At times there are two or three swimming in each lane of the present pool. The YMCA has little parking, and its water is cold.

Please reconsider, Essentia.
