Special Facts: Background On October 2, 2007 voters approved Proposition 4, authorizing the issuance of $19.8 million in general obligation bond debt for paying for the construction of a pool facility in Dimond Park. A portion of this project will qualify for State reimbursement under the State’s School Construction Bond Debt Reimbursement Program. The Voter Information for October 2, 2007 Municipal Election stated that an approximately 33,700 sq. ft. swimming facility would be constructed. Plans call for 6-lane lap pool with diving board and a zero-entry warm water pool for learn-to-swim-programs, a reduced water recreation area, senior aerobics, and other water safety programs. Locker rooms, spectator seating, mechanical rooms, and small administrative areas would also be constructed. On October 13, 2007 at the CBJ Assembly Retreat, the Assembly updated the goal of “revised the strategy for construction of a Valley Community Center” to “monitor design, construction and management of Valley Pool.” The Assembly heard from staff that a pool task force would be working with CBJ Staff on the design of the pool”.
