Project Status (Updated June 2020)
The City contracted with Engineering Consultants CPL last fall and met with the Project Advisory Committee and staff to begin a "wish list" for a site master plan. The consensus was that the immediate focus should be on vital structural improvements to the pool and pool house. The group set a goal of June 2020 for completion of work including roof replacement, masonry repairs, pool lining and leak repairs, and replacement of the pool filter and pump. Now CPL has turned its attention to the addition of a new splash pad, which will be constructed this fall. The Project Advisory Committee will be asked to reconvene in July to finalize elements of the master plan and select one piece to be constructed on the stadium side in 2021. Additional fundraising will be required in order to complete all elements included in the master plan.
