A pool that’s a rarity is about to become a reality in some areas.
A $3.9 million pool is being built in Inamorada, in the state’s central west.
The new pool, located at the site of the old swimming pool, will be a huge boon to the area, and also draw more visitors.
“It’s going to be a fantastic addition to the city and will be really popular with the local community, which is really important,” said Inamore Mayor Andrew Tully.
“I think we’re going to see a boom of people visiting, especially during the Christmas period,” he said.
The area has been in the spotlight recently as residents have complained about the smell, the smell of chlorine, the lack of privacy and the low tide.
The city has had a number of water quality complaints in recent years, but this one has come as a shock.
“We just didn’t know that we had this problem, and we didn’t expect to get it until now,” said resident Jim Withers.
“So we’re really thankful,” said Tully, adding that he believes the money will be well spent.
“A lot of us who live in the city do not have access to a swimming pool,” he added.
“We’re not used to having access to such a big pool and that’s why we’re so happy that we’re able to get this project funded.”
The water here is pretty good.””
The city is very close to us.
The water here is pretty good.”
The city says the project will help protect Inamoro’s environment.
The project is being funded by the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
