Press Release – Change in Governance with Crowsnest Pass Community Pool Society

September 29 2022

September 29, 2022 - For Immediate Release – The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass owns the Crowsnest Pass Community Pool in Blairmore.  Currently, the Pool is operated through an operating agreement with the Crowsnest Pass Community Pool Society (aka Pass Pool Board).  

Our Pool has significantly grown in usership, complexity of operation, and safety requirement for both staff and pool users.  At the September 27, 2022 Council Meeting, Council discussed and agreed to transition the operation of the Pass Pool to the Municipality.  As a result, the Municipality will assume operation of the pool in a similar manner as our other recreational facilities like the Pass Powderkeg Ski Hill, Crowsnest Complex, and MDM Community Centre and the Society will be transitioning into a new capacity to support the success of the pool.  This change will take effect in six (6) months’ time, after the notice required to terminate the Pass Pool Operating Agreement has passed.

The Crowsnest Pass Pool Society has been an asset to the operation of the Pool for many years.  The Municipality wishes to thank the society for their dedicated service to the Pool during this time, and we look forward to working with them in this new capacity.
