Preserve and save the UNH - Durham outdoor pool

1,004 Signatures Goal: 50

Dear UNH President Huddleston, UNH Vice President Rubenstein, Town Council Chair Gooze and Durham Town Administrator Selig: We, the undersigned urge you to please take immediate steps to insure the preservation and continuing operation of the UNH/Durham outdoor pool. For generations UNH students, faculty, staff and the residents of Durham have enjoyed the outdoor pool at UNH. The pool is a precious part of what makes Durham a viable town/gown community and one of the few “perks” that Durham receives in exchange for having its largest landowner -- UNH -- pay no property taxes to the town. UNH must preserve and not shrink or close the pool to expand Snively Arena, as it is threatening to do. The pool is an actively managed, fenced pool; water quality tests are made on a regular basis and the pool regularly passes. The pool is more than a place for exercise – it is a place for building community; generations of mothers – some who are professors, and some who are stay-at-home moms -- have sat on the stone wall keeping watch over their children and talking with other parents. Many friends have been made there; many alliances between faculty and towns-people have been formed at the pool. The pool plays an important role in the life of UNH and the Town of Durham. PRESERVE AND SAVE THE POOL!
