If you've driven by Smalley Pool recently, you may have noticed a lot of commotion. In accordance with the 2015 capital budget, the roofs of the Smalley Pool pump room and bath house will be torn off and replaced.

This project will preserve the integrity and improve the appearance of both buildings, and is expected to be complete by May 22, just in time for the summer pool season.
