Feasibility Study

As part of the DCNR Community Conservation Partnership Program, Hampden Township hired Waters Edge Aquatic Design to conduct a feasibility study of the Hampden Pool Complex. This study took place from May 2019 - February 2020.

Hampden Township Board of Commissioners will host a public workshop to further discuss and evaluate the results of the feasibility study conducted last year for the Hampden Pool.  The workshop will be held, in person, on Tuesday, August 24 at 5:30 p.m. at the Township Municipal Building located at 209 S. Sporting Hill Road.  Residents may also remotely attend the workshop using the following information: https://bit.ly/2TOM0PK or join by phone: 1-408-418-9388 with an access code of 132 595 0230.  When asked to enter a participant ID press the (#) pound sign.  Commissioners encourage public participation and discussion on the future needs of the pool complex.
