(Calexico pool project moves forward)….The project was approved this week.
Earlier in the month the project stalled. The Calexico Unified School District Board could not muster enough votes to approve the project on August 10th. This week the vote was unanimous to move forward. The new vote came after the Board was assured the competition pool would meet the competition standards of the California Interscholastic Federation. The Board held a special meeting Wednesday to receive the details surrounding the competition pool. The School District and the City of Calexico are working together to construct a swimming complex at the Calexico High School. It will replace the pool that was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake.
