The mission of the HVCA is to enhance the community through cultural, educational and recreational activities, events and service. The passion and commitment of Homestead Valley residents has allowed the Community Center, pool, meadow and 80+ acres of open space to be publicly owned and managed to ensure their continued preservation for years to come.
After 40+ years, the well-loved Homestead Valley pool is ready for a revitalization. The poolis facing significant infrastructure challenges including disintegrating plaster, aging, and inefficient mechanical equipment. We also have an urgent need for modern accessible bathrooms, showers and changing rooms.
A newly designed L-shaped pool provides a wide shallow end for our young, older or challenged swimmers to be safe and protected from lap swimmers. Modern energy efficient plumbing, heaters, and filtration systems will provide many years of recreational enjoyment for the community. Environmentally friendly alternatives to chlorine and additional improved solar systems will decrease our carbon footprint. Improved ADA pool, shower and pool access will provide a welcoming atmosphere for all.
Initial cost estimates for this project have come in as high as $1.3M including contingencies.Of course, we hope to reduce costs as we move to the engineering design phase and make decisions on materials, contractor, etc.
How can you help?
The HVCA Board has been working hard to secure funding for this renovation project. We have already achieved great success from a number of sources including our own reserves, donations from the County of Marin, CSA #14 and approval for a loan from the County for up to $400K. With all of this, we still have a funding gap.
This is a chance for our community to come together to improve a incredible resource that will add value across the board – from neighborhood connectedness to home values.In order to make our dreams of a new pool for Homestead Valley become a reality, we need your help.
