ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) - Residents of St. Albans will vote next month on whether the community should build a year-round swimming pool at the base of a community ski hill.

The $5.5 million project will go before voters in both St. Albans town and city on Town Meeting Day on March 3, Vermont Public Radio reported. A 1% local option tax would fund the project.

“The town and the city are quite literally buying into something together,” said St. Albans City Manager Dominic Cloud. “I think it’s the first thing ever that the two communities own jointly. So it’s a real sign of changing times in greater St. Albans.”

The municipal pool would be built at the base of Hard’ack, a small sledding and ski hill in town. The pool would be open to the outdoors during the summer and covered by a bubble structure in the winter.
