Support for the pool upgrade

Community input helps in pool plans

We want to thank everyone who participated in recent discussions about a bond measure to maintain and renovate our school facilities and community swimming pool.
Your input has helped us narrow down the project list and reduce the amount of a bond that will keep our facilities running for the next 20 years.
The projected cost of the bond is lower than we first anticipated. The owner of a home with an assessed value of $175,000 (considered an average for Lebanon) is projected to pay $3.80 per month or $45.50 per year starting in 2023. The state also will provide $4.3 million in matching funds if the bond is approved by voters.
Maintaining our facilities is significantly less than building new ones.
The cost to maintain our facilities is $17.50 a square foot; building new facilities is approximately $600 a square foot. Renovating the community pool is an important project.
The pool is an economic driver for Lebanon with 68,000 unique visitors per year to our community. It provides important health and wellness programs, sport activities, recreation opportunities, and life-saving skills for children.
We hope you will take a moment to learn more about the projects the bond would fund at
We also welcome your questions.

Pool provides basic services to many

I would like to strongly support the upcoming Bond for the Lebanon swimming pool.
Not only does it provide critical services for youth (swim team, water safety, etc.) it also provides much needed services for adults in the community, such as lap swimming, water aerobics, etc.
Services that cater to older adults are much needed as well.
Please support the Lebanon Pool.
