Revision as of 04:18, 28 June 2012

A City of Berkeley Pools bond proposition is on the November 6, 2012 ballot for voters in the City of Berkeley in Alameda County.[1]

If voters approve it, the city will be authorized to borrow $19.4 million to make a variety of improvements to Berkeley's pools.

The specific improvements would include:

  • A new Warm Water Pool
  • A new pool at Willard Middle School
  • Renovation or replacement of the lockers at the pool at King Middle School.

The bond would be repaid over a period of 30 years. A home with an assessed value of $330,500 would pay about $25/year.[1]

The fate of the bond proposition is tied to the fate of a different measure on the same November 6, 2012 ballot: the Berkeley Pools parcel tax question. If one wins, and the other loses, they are both moot.

Support

  • Amelie Melde Fontenay is a parent of a Willard School student. She says, "My only son got here just in time to see the pool filled in with dirt. I don’t think it’s fair that the other two (middle) schools have pools and Willard doesn’t."[2]
  • Caroline Hall, a fifth grader at Malcolm X, says, "I love Willard Pool. I believe next year when I go here, there should be a pool so we can have fun. What’s a rectangle with dirt in it good for?"[2]
