Since the referendum was passed in Febraury 2013, the District of Vanderhoof has been in the process of finding the remaining funds that will allow the District of Vanderhoof to move forward with building a pool and aquatic facility for Vanderhoof. As well, the District has hired architect company Bruce Carscadden to draft up designs for the facility.
Arcitect Bruce Carscadden has been hired by the District of Vanderhoof to design the pool facility. There have been several versions of the pool plan, with the latest submitted in December 2013. Click here for a package inlcuding drawings related to this plan.
There are many variables involved with the budget that can change the final cost of the project. These variables are being considered by the District of Vanderhoof.
