Durham panel jumps in, gives 4-2 nod to UNH pool plan
Rubenstein, who was at the working group’s meeting Wednesday, said the university decided in July to close the pool at the end of the summer season in 2013 due to long-standing concerns — including structural issues brought up by the N.H. Department of Environmental Services.
Rubenstein said the university “is not flexible on the matter.”
During a brief public input session, lifelong resident Sally Ford begged university officials to reconsider closing the pool for good.
“They’re talking about this baby pool and they have the Taj Mahal,” Ford said of the 42,000-square-foot, Depression-eara pool. “They’re mad.”
“There are so many ways to reinvigorate the current pool,” Rotner said.
Town Administrator Todd Selig, who also voted in favor of the proposal, said the town council plans to consider the matter again April 7.
If approved, the project would take about six months to complete and could be ready for the summer of 2015.
“There are five different options — they’re all still on the table,” Bencks said, adding he plans to evaluate which location for the center would create the least amount of shade on the pool.
