When could we break ground?
The project has all design and engineering plans complete , with initial approval by the Department of Health in Albany (their formal approval is made when the project construction is to begin) and the contractor is ready. There is Planning Board appearances to be made.
The major hold up at this time is funds. With the funds, this swimming pool could be in and ready for use in a short period of time.
Certain features of the pool such as the slide, umbrella and children's slide are items the committee is committed to having. With our funding now being over $500,000, we are fast approaching the necessary funds to break ground. While it is important that the engineering for these features be in the construction plans, they could feasibly be added later through fundraising or individual donations. That is a possible option, but ideally, the committee is hoping for the excitement and interest to translate into the added donations which push us over the top.
