Underwood Pool
When voting on funding the pool project, we have the green elements to additionally consider: having a pool nearby encourages local travel - ideally walking and biking. The new proposal does not add parking, rather it utilizes the Wellington School parking lot. It is designed to not further impact the wetlands, as well it uses natural light in the bath houses as much as possible. Read Ellen Schrieber's overview.
