Almost done!

The landscaping is done, the building is almost finished, and we are just days away from having water in the pool. We just need the rain to let up for a few days so the pool builders can lay on the final plaster inside the pool itself. After that, we fire it up. Staff has been busy with staffing and programming, as well as making sure we have all the signs, cleaning supplies, and other equipment we need on opening day. We still hope for a June 26th grand opening, but we are pretty much at the mercy of the weather at this point. I notice lots of people driving by to look at the facility so hopefully word is getting around. We will have some new signs out on Highway 126 shortly, and will start really promoting the opening as soon as we are sure of the date.

We've taken the opportunity to make some improvements to the play area of the park while we had concrete contractors on site. New curbing, and ADA access and refreshed bark mulch made a major difference.

This upcoming week will be asphalt and painting. Plastering of the pool has been put off a week but hopefully wont affect our planned grand opening which is tentatively scheduled for the 26th of June.

We're all busy working out the final details. The construction folks are pouring a lot of concrete and asphalt this week and it looks like everything is still on schedule. We're tying up a lot of loose ends and working out details like security systems, cash registers, chemicals and the like. It sure takes a lot to keep a pool up and going.

The City Council adopted the fee schedule for this year and we are working out scheduling and other details. All of the pool information will be included in the Summer Recreation Guide which will be available around the first week of June. I'll keep you posted as the schedule comes together.
