The proposed pool facility is a separate building project intended to support both ELHS interscholastic swim programs and a variety of community recreational swim programs. The pool is adjacent to the proposed new high school and designed to allow easy access to students, while providing public access during non-school hours.
The pool project will be funded solely by borrowing, contingent upon approval by the voters of a ballot question on November 7, 2023, to allow a debt exclusion for annual repayment of the debt. The pool project debt exclusion will be a separate ballot question from the debt exclusion for the high school project.
There is no participation (reimbursement) by the Massachusetts School Building Authority for any portion of the pool project.
