After a plea Tuesday night by a group seeking to build a community swimming pool, the Sonoma Valley Unified School District board put off a decision on going forward with plans for a new pool at the high school.
In a letter to the board, the group, Sonoma Valley Health and Recreation Association, asked the board to put off a decision for now – and the board agreed.
According to the group’s letter, “We anticipate a major announcement regarding a pool location before the end of June. Due to the delicate nature of property negotiations, we cannot share any details, only to say that we believe our announcement could impact the school board’s decision tonight.”
Tom Coughlan, a member of the group, told the board that it hopes to have an agreement on a site by the end of June.
“We’re pleased and enthusiastic about a pool at the high school,” he said. “But we’re requesting that you hold off for about six weeks. This could be beneficial – a win-win situation.”
