Concord To Consider Plan To Keep Cowell Pool Open All Winter

Concord, California – The Concord City Council is set to consider a plan to keep Concord Community Pool (Cowell Pool) open all winter, after budget cuts had threatened to close it for November, December and January.

The plan to keep the pool open during those three months involves a money commitment from the Concord-based Terrapins Swim Team. If the pool were to remain open, the City of Concord would collect the $10,905 and the Terrapins Swim Team would sign an amendment to their existing agreement with the city to pay an additional $19,095 for pool use over the three winter months.

The City Council in June made a series of budget cuts totaling about $10 million in response to budget problems brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tonight’s Concord City Council meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.
