Clemens Community Pool update

As you may have read, the Philomath School District and the Benton Community Foundation are exploring all options to keep the children of the greater Philomath community swimming. Following a donation last fall from the Foundation to renovate the Clemens Community Pool, builders hired by the school district uncovered new information about significant structural challenges to the pool’s tank, or vessel – the part that holds the water.

Given the new scope of repairs needed, plans to renovate the pool have been put on hold while community leaders research interim and long-term options. A letter to the community from Philomath School District Interim Superintendent Philip Brazeau and Benton Community Foundation President and CEO Chris Quaka is available here.
