Town Hall on the New Piedmont Pool

Piedmont Pool Town Hall


The League of Women Voters will host a virtual town hall on Piedmont’s plans for the new community pool.  In November 2020, Piedmont voters approved $19.5 million in General Obligation bonds to finance a new pool. The current pool closed indefinitely on September 8, 2020.


When:  Thursday, November 4, 2021 at 4pm

The event will include brief presentations from the city’s team, followed by audience Q&A moderated by Piedmont League President Lorrel Plimier.  To submit a question prior to the event, please fill out this form.
