UNH to Durham: Get out of the pool
The town proposed forming a working group of town council members, community members and representatives of the university.
The state Department of Environmental Services recently concluded a review of the pool and determined that it is a swimming pool, not a modified flow through pool, but because it predates any state standards, many facets of the pool have been "grandfathered."
Selig said UNH would have to make the argument for continuing to grandfather certain elements of the pool.
UNH: No pool in 2014
On Saturday, the university officially notified the town that as a result of the DES determination and the safety concerns, the pool will not be opened for the summer 2014 season.
Resident and state Rep. Marjorie Smith said the letter from UNH to Selig notifying him of the decision was "disingenuous at best."
"It makes statements that cannot be corroborated in the way that this letter lays out, and to have an institution which I would think of as the intellectual pinnacle in the state act in this way causes me both personal pain and professional sadness," Smith said.
"I am saddened to see a situation in which the university has chosen to take a path that is not one of cooperation and mutual respect," Smith said.
"In fact, it praises the university and the town for how well that facility has been maintained," Smith said.
The town/gown committee will meet again on Nov. 21.
