Posted on 05/31/2019
At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, New Hope accepted a grant from Minnesota Swimming, Inc. in the amount of $40,000. The grant funds will be used toward the construction of the 50-meter, 8-lane outdoor swimming pool.

Mr. Bob Crunstedt, Executive Director of Minnesota Swimming, Inc. along with Mr. Joe Kubisiak, NHCP Swim Team Past President, presented the award to City Council.

Also in attendance was 12-year-old Evelyn, who spoke ahead of the award presentation to share her appreciation and excitement about having a 50-meter pool in New Hope.

Minnesota Swimming, Inc. is a nonprofit organization with approximately 10,000 athletes, coaches, officials, and volunteers who are involved with competitive swimming for youth in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Their organization provides grants for feasibility studies, design services, pool construction, and safety enhancements.

New Hope is very thankful for all involved who are helping make the new 50-meter pool come to life.
