The 2015 Town of Carbondale Park, Recreation and Trail Master Plan cited strong public support for the renovation and upgrade to the John M. Fleet municipal pool.  The existing pool is now 40 years old and its aging infrastructure is becoming exceedingly costly and difficult to maintain.  At some point in the not too distant future the Town will be unable to maintain it any longer and the pool will need to be closed.  At the same time pool usage continues to climb, indicating the value that Carbondale area citizens place on having a municipal pool. 

We want to learn the desires of our community regarding a municipal aquatic facility and to gauge individual support for creative solutions to meet our needs.  We appreciate your help by participating in the following survey and invite you to join us on February 28, 2018 for an open forum to talk in greater detail and explore available options.
