After months of research and review, the Pool Evaluation Committee has settled on a final recommendation to be presented to the Cheshire Town Council.
Next week, the Committee will advise the Council to move forward with a tension membrane covering for the Cheshire Community Pool which, if approved, would cost between $2 and $3 million to construct.
The Committee had been deciding between three possible choices for ultimately covering the town pool. The options were another bubble similar to the ones that have succumb to harsh storms the last few years, the tension membrane, and an OpenAire covering that would have cost upwards of $7 million.
The membrane was the middle choice, and Committee members insisted it was the right way forward for the beleguered pool.
Now, the Council will decide whether to accept the recommendation and move forward with the tension membrane option or look for another alternative. If they approved the Committee's recommendation, it would put to referendum this fall and decided by Cheshire voters.
