The new pool would be 6,400 square feet with a maximum depth of 5 1/2 feet, with six 25-meter lap lanes, designated area for aerobic workout and swimming instruction and family swimming. The pool would accommodate 250 people. There would be a separate kiddy pool and splash play area.
It is proposed that a 3,160-square foot restroom and concession building be built that would include shower and changing areas, lifeguard and first aid rooms. There also would be a separate pool filter building to house all mechanical equipment as well as a new separate ticket and entry booth.
All of the structures will have to meet new FEMA flood regulations, Monelli said.
The application was filed July 10th, the Selectmen, who have already announced their support for this boondoggle, will vote on it July 24th.
The two-week period between the Municipal Improvement status application and the selectmen’s decision is to allow for public comment on the project, said First Selectman Peter Tesei.
It won’t make a bit of difference, but here’s how to submit your public comment. Fire away.
