Potential design of indoor pool in Smederevo
Smederevo is preparing for the construction of an indoor pool, and the preliminary architectural and urban plan for the project of a pool complex in this city was presented in early July.

The potential look of the pool was presented to the public, and as Zdravka Kovacevic Vasic, the head of the Department for Economy, Agriculture, Local Economic Development and Public Procurement, explains for eKapija, the preliminary project is expected to be completed in about a month, in mid-August.

It is only after the project-technical documentation, being prepared by a consortium headed by Elkoms Belgrade, is completed that the date of the beginning of the construction might be considered, as well as who the potential investors might be.

– The plan is for the IPA project, in partnership with the Romanian municipality of Ghilad, through which the preparation of the project documentation for the indoor pool in Smederevo, to take until May 2019, and we believe that we will have the full documentation by April at the latest. After that, we will be able to consider potential investors that would invest funds in the construction of the pool. The most important thing is to first get quality documentation, as this will enable us to find a financier for the construction much more easily – points out Kovacevic Vasic, who is also the manager of the IPA project “Water Sports – A Healthy Future for Our Children”, which is carried out as part of the Romania-Serbia cross border cooperation program.

She reminds that the project entails securing the basic requirements for a continued engagement of the young in water sports throughout the year and for the raising of the awareness of the benefits of water sports and a healthy lifestyle in young people and their parents. The pool will not have a commercial purpose primarily, and eKapija's interviewee therefore believes that the state and the City of Smederevo would provide a least a portion of the funds needed for the construction of the pool, perhaps even through new IPA funds.

– The location for the indoor pool in Smederevo is the abandoned bed of the river Jezava, and the proximity of the Smederevo Fortress, a historical monument of remarkable importance, makes the preparation of the project-technical documentation for this type of facility extremely complex. That is why, in addition to the necessary elements proscribed by the Law on Planning and Construction, exploratory works need to be executed and a feasibility study and the accompanying documentation need to be prepared, which has caused the high price of the preparation of the documentation – Zdravka Kovacevic Vasic says.

Let us remind that the total budget for this project is EUR 829,000. The portion used by Smederevo amounts to EUR 434,869, whereas Ghilad uses EUR 394,131. The EU finances 85% of the amount from IPA funds.
