Special meeting to focus on Hopkins Pool

DeKALB – The DeKalb Park Board will hold a special meeting from 2 to 4 p.m. today to discuss planning for Hopkins Pool.

The workshop will be in the Terrace Room at the Hopkins Park Community Center, 1403 Sycamore Road.

For months, DeKalb commissioners had been planning a $5 million replacement pool that would fit within the existing Hopkins Park pool facility. Plans for the renovated pool would reduce the maximum number of people allowed in the pool from 1,400 to 1,100. But after the April elections brought three new commissioners to the board, the commissioners slowed the planning process.
