The most recent concept draft is provided below:

 

Update: September 2021

The City has been working on gathering input to guide the development of the pool concepts. An initial survey was conducted in Spring of 2021 and 885 people responded. The summary results are provided HERE, with an analysis of the open-ended responses HERE.

A follow-up survey was conducted to narrow the focus of the amenities. The summary results are provided HERE.

The team also held an in-person open house at the pool on August 13, 2021. The consultants and city staff spent the day at the pool to observe the use of the pool and talk to residents about the preliminary concept. Feedback from this meeting, use observations, and the survey were used to revise the draft concept.

The concept draft from September 2021 is provided below.
