Grant High community can see pool renditions Wednesday

The Grant High School community will get a look at an artist’s rendition of the proposed new campus pool Wednesday.

Students will see the plans first at 4 p.m., while the public can view them at 5:30 p.m. Both presentations will be in the main cafeteria at Grant High, 1400 Grand Avenue.

The $5.7 million project will replace the 80-year-old, non-functioning pool behind the school. The pool was closed about five years ago by the Sacramento County Health Department, according to Twin Rivers Unified officials.

Grant parents and students have complained for years about the lack of a functioning pool. The Pacers swim team must now travel three miles to Rio Linda High School to practice.

Construction of the new pool is expected to be completed by the end of the summer of 2015.
