Fate of former Marilyn Estates Association pool
The Marilyn Estates Recreation Association (not affiliated with the Marilyn Estates Association) closed the subdivisions's pool in May 2011. Marilyn Estates President Jonathan Shear said, "The Recreation Association has decided to cease operations. The Pool has been demolished. Our deed restrictions state that the property can be used as a pool or for residential housing only. The property can be used for nothing else. Proceeds from the sale or the property will be used to pay off obligations accumulated by the Recreation association. Since the Recreation Association is a tax exempt organization, Any money left after obligations are paid for must be donated to another tax exempt organization."
