Pool Infrastructure Project 2023
Following conclusion of the Pool Feasibility Study, the Hampden Township Board of Commissioners began taking actions to implement upgrades to Hampden Pool that will ensure the facility is available to the next generation of Township residents. In January of 2023, Hampden Township entered into an agreement with MKSD Architects to design multiple pool improvements including to the gutter and filtration system, bath house, and shade structures. The Township plans go to out to bid for the work in the Spring of 2023 with the intent to construct upgrades in the off season.
