An indoor pool for Motueka at last? YES!!
After years of hopes and hurdles, Motueka is now in the position to get its very own indoor community swimming pool. Thanks to an excellent compromise, work is now under way to plan and create an affordable, good-quality pool facility for Motueka.
Good Sports Motueka, the group responsible for building the Sports Park grandstand and facilities, is planning to thermally enclose the Motueka High School swimming pool in a high-tech construction, add changing rooms for the general public separate from the high school changing rooms, and construct a pool for young learner swimmers.
This will allow ultimately for the pool to be heated, and able to be used for most if not all of the year. All that is needed now is for the Motueka community to get behind the project and raise funds to construct the pool.
Your fundraising team has a plan to raise the required money, and is already about half-way there. We want to get as many people involved as possible - not just swimming enthusiasts but also everyone who knows how much this facility will help make Motueka an even better place to live and work.
No ratepayer funds
will be used in this
project - it's all
Our goal is a total of between $800,000 and $1.2 million, made up of at least $200,000 from Motueka businesses, individuals and the wider community, a similar amount from business naming rights, and the rest from the big outside funding agencies. At the start of 2017 we are over half way there!
