Berkeley Pools bond proposition, Measure N (November 2012)
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.
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.
