Donors have stepped up to fully fund repairs to the Traner Pool after it was vandalized earlier this year.
“When the Traner Pool was wrecked by vandals, I made a promise to residents in northeast Reno that we would bring it back better than ever,” said City Councilmember Oscar Delgado. “The Pennington Foundation stepped up to help us realize that goal.
“We are all grateful for their generous donation and their continued commitment to our community.”
The newly announced donation will ensure that pool will reopen in June 2018. Construction on repairs to the pool will take place from February through May 2018.
