Haverhill High School Pool Opens
HAVERHILL- Mayor James J. Fiorentini and Haverhill Public Schools Superintendent Raleigh Buchanan welcomed swimmers, including members of the Haverhill High Boys Swim Team, back to the renovated and improved Charles White Memorial Swimming Pool and Haverhill High School today.
The Pool has seen several improvements as part of the $27 million upgrade to the Haverhill High School facilities, designed to eliminate any possible accreditation issues. Improvements include better lighting, electrical and fire safety upgrades, increased handicapped accessibility and heating, cooling and plumbing improvements. The pool received a 60-day temporary occupancy permit while other building issues are completed. A high school swim meet regularly scheduled for today was held.
The opening of the pool eliminates the need to bus swimmers to other practice facilities, and allows the City to receive rental payments from outside swim leagues. The overall high school renovation is expected to be on time and on budget.
