District and Dubuque Area Swimmin’ Hurricanes (DASH) Announce Planned Pool Partnership

The Dubuque Community School District and the Dubuque Area Swimmin’ Hurricanes (DASH) will join forces to expand the district’s newly planned competition pool while providing a new home to DASH swimmers. The intent to partner was announced at the September 11 meeting of the district’s Facilities and Support Services Committee of the Board of Education.

The proposed partnership would provide DASH with a 25-year rental of the pool during non-district times in exchange for $1 million to cover the cost of expanding the pool’s footprint to 75 feet. In order for the partnership to move forward, DASH intends to raise its funding commitment through philanthropic support from its members and swimming supporters in the community prior to construction bidding of the project. A formal agreement for the partnership will be presented to the Board of Education for approval at an upcoming meeting. The district’s new pool is currently in the design phase, with total project completion anticipated in fall 2019. Read More
