The Mount Pleasant Pool Committee continues to advocate on behalf of the community for a replacement outdoor swimming pool, which has been identified through public consultation as the most desired recreational amenity in Mount Pleasant. In December 2012, in response to extensive public consultation and engagement, the Mount Pleasant Community Centre Association allocated $100,000.00 toward the replacement pool project. This brings our total funds raised to $101,179.84. Residents hope this will inspire Park Board to begin to look at other funding possibilities such as Capital Plan dollars (2015-2018 Capital Plan), Community Amenity Contributions, funding from other levels of government, green technology grants, and private donations. Tax deductible donations may be made to the Mount Pleasant Community Centre Association, specifying that your donation is for the ‘Pool Replacement Fund’ should a pool be built in the future, or another worthwhile project as identified by the community.
Please join us in our continued advocacy work, and consider making a donation today to make an outdoor pool in Mount Pleasant a reality in our future! For information on how you can become involved, contact the community centre at 604.257.3080 or email@example.com.
