MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (May 26, 2017) - As part of the R. L. Jones Center Renovation project, the Town of Mount Pleasant is replacing the 26-year old HVAC system for the pool with a new unit. This council-approved capital improvement project began on April 24 and is expected to conclude in mid-June. The new Dectron unit will improve the Town’s ability to control humidity and maintain adequate pool and air temperatures for patrons at the R.L. Jones Center.
"Over the past two years we have been able to resurface the pool, paint the facility, and install new ADA chair lifts,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page. “The replacement of the HVAC system is just the latest in a series of improvements the Town has made to upgrade this popular facility and better serve our residents.”
About the Capital Improvement Plan
The Town of Mount Pleasant Capital Improvement emphasizes the Town’s commitment to its capital needs and totals almost $50 million dollars for fiscal year 2018. The Capital Improvement Plan is a five-year plan updated annually. Projects are ranked by the Mayor and Town Council, and funding plans are set in place and ultimately approved each fiscal year. As most projects tend to span multiple years, funding remains active and is carried forward to each new budget until a project is completed. The Town of Mount Pleasant is committed to funding major transportation and stormwater infrastructure improvements, which combined are 85% of the total CIP budget, along with the continued effort to maintain Town facilities and other assets to create a more sustainable community for citizens.
