New Lake pool to be built on current site

Building in the same location changes the timeline for the project.

When Board members were lobbying the membership for a special dues assessment to fund the $900,000 project, they were optimistic that getting the funding in the summer of 2017 would allow construction to begin as early as January 2018, with the potential of opening the new facility sometime in 2018.

Now, it looks like construction won’t begin until September 2018. While the committee might be able to get bidding and permitting done by the winter, “unpredictable winter weather conditions could delay construction and put the 2018 pool season at risk,” said Weaver. “Therefore early fall of 2018 is the ideal time to begin construction.”

One thing the design group will not be looking at is a heated bubble for four-season use.

Some members of the community, particularly parents of those on local swim teams, have lobbied for a bubble. With the closure of the indoor pool at Health Nutz gym on Lake Monticello Road, there will be no off-season swimming options in the area.

Citing the high cost of staffing an “aesthetically unappealing” bubble over the winter months, the committee has already unanimously decided “the costs greatly outweigh the benefits and that approval of a substantial dues increase would be required” to run the facility year-round, Weaver wrote.

Weaver said there are no cost estimates or concept designs for the project currently on the table, but that they should be completed soon. A date for a community town hall will be set in the coming weeks.
