Renovations for Traner Pool move forward

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Reno City Council has given the go-ahead to begin the redesign and renovation of Traner Pool.

The council unanimously approved up to $110,000 from the Community Development Block Grant Fund to help pay for the design process of the closed pool.

Traner Pool has been closed this season after vandals caused thousands of dollars in damage in March 2017.

The new design would repair the damage, and renovate portions of the facility to make it ADA-compliant. But the city would also like to add upgrades to the pool, including a splash park for younger children.

In all, the renovations and repairs are estimated to cost about $1.3 million. The city has nearly half a million dollars already set aside for the project, but there is a shortfall of about $790,000. Several businesses in the area have donated to the project.

The city has set up a website if you would like to make a donation. Just click here:
