Many of you may have heard by now that a new pool house for the Nobleton Public Pool has been approved by Council and construction is underway.
For as long as I can remember, the pool has been a hub of community activity during the warm months. Paul Olsen, a member of the Nobleton Lions Club recently shared with me that the pool was originally built and funded by the Lions Club during the early 1970s. The Lions operated the pool for the first two years in an agreement with the Township. Following that, it was turned over to the Township as a fully paid for and profitable operating facility.
We are indebted to the Lions for their vision and enduring drive to support and develop our community. Their contributions are indeed, significant.
A commemorative plaque will be placed in the new building that acknowledges the Lion’s involvement and financial support. The project is expected to be complete by summer 2016.
Here’s an overview of the plans for the new building:
