The proposed new year-round pool facility at South Shore Country Club is back on the town's radar screen after the SSCC Management Committee's recent submission of a $1 million Community Preservation Act preliminary application as part of the financing package for the roughly $7 million project.
Town Meeting earlier approved $500,000 to fund design and construction documents for a new pool.
"We expect to submit the final application to the Community Preservation Committee by the deadline, complete with cost estimates currently being compiled by our architecture firm RMD Collaborative," Management Committee Chair Christine Smith said recently.
The goal is to present the project at the April 2022 Town Meeting for approval. “The town will be asked to approve funding for anything that doesn’t get paid using CPA funds or other resources, including potential grants and donations,” Smith said.
If the CPC recommends the project and the subsequent Town Meeting vote is positive, construction could begin shortly thereafter, resulting in the potential opening of the new pool in Summer 2023.
