Sneak a peek: City installs “pool cam” that overlooks construction site

Image from the new camera taken on Tuesday, April 4

The City of Piedmont has installed a camera on top of the Recreation Department building that has a full view of the pool construction site, with an eye toward creating a photo archive that will be used to create a time-lapse video of the full building project once the pool is complete.

The wide-angle camera will take a high-resolution photo every 15 minutes between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. that will be displayed on the Community Pool project webpage HERE.

The city says it is working with the vendor to make archived photos available to the community on the website as well.

In other pool news, departing City Administrator Sara Lillevand gave an update at Monday night’s City Council meeting on progress with the community pool project. She said the Piedmont Recreational Facilities Organization is “on track” to raise the $2.1 million it pledged for the pool project, which it hopes to present to the city in June, and that the city is working with East Bay Community Energy on a $750,000 low- or no-interest loan to help pay for pool electrification
