The new sports facility will be entirely financed by the Valencian Generalitat which has already reserved 1.5 million euros for the first part of the works.
Xàbia Town Hall has approved the bidding documents to tender for the project for the municipal indoor pool. The design contract comes out at a price of 118,235 euros and all the technical details will be published in the public sector contracting platform so that interested parties can present their proposals within 15 days. With this step, one of the local projects most asked for by our citizens is back on track, after a delay of more than a decade. The project was revived a year ago when the current regional government recognized the historical debt that its predecessors had left pending with Xàbia, and finally included in their budget funding for the works. The mayor, José Chulvi, pointed out that the Town Council and the Generalitat had agreed that the Municipality should commission the design of the pool (which is what is being tendered for now) while the construction will be entirely financed by the regional government, which has already reserved the first payment of 1.5 million. Chulvi is delighted that within this current legislature, he is able to take such a decisive step for his government in which the indoor pool passes from being a dream to a reality. The site where the pool will be built adjoins the plot of land adjacent to the sports pavilion. The complex will comprise two swimming pools and an activity room aimed at gymnastics and physical maintenance. The main pool (25 meters long by 16’7 wide) will be multi-purpose and the secondary (16’70 by 10 meters) will be dedicated to teaching complementary activities or introducing swimming to both children and adults and especially for rehabilitation swimming. To reduce maintenance costs a connection with the Palau d’Esports and energy efficiency measures are being studied. The project is estimated to cost around 3 million euros.
