As you know, the park district’s PARC grant for the construction of the new pool has been reinstated.  Designs are being finished up by the architect with construction set to begin in the spring and a completion date set for next October/November.  Consequently, with the year and a half delay while our grant was suspended the cost has gone up approximately 9% for a total cost of over $3,000,000.  Due to the rise in the cost for construction, the park district’s share will raise about an additional $250,000.
