GPCC Workshop features more discussions on Caveman Pool
The Grants Pass City Council continued to look at the future of Caveman Pool and allocating American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding during its weekly workshop sessions. The City Council began the April 18 session with a staff presentation on community pool options. The panel must decide whether to rehabilitate the aging Caveman Pool next to the Grants Pass High School campus, build a new public swimming pool there or invest in a brand new pool complex in a different location. The Council will also continue working on allocating ARPA funds to local projects and agencies. The panel has already allocated $3 million of the money to the new water treatment plant. The deadline for earmarking the federal funding is December 2024 and the money must be spent by December 2026. The final item is a review of agendas for upcoming workshops and regular meetings.
