Council approves study for leisure pool

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Since 1988, a warm water children’s pool has been the topic of discussion among county officials.

At Tuesday night’s county council meeting, councilors voted 4-1 to move ahead with a study for the leisure pool capital improvement project.

Councilor Vincent Chiravalle voted against the motion. Both Council Chair Michael Wheeler and Councilor Nona Bowman were absent.

Councilor Robert Gibson moved, seconded by Councilor Sharon Stover, that council “direct staff to develop for Parks and Recreation Board and council consideration conceptual facility and operational options to broaden and enhance recreational aquatic opportunities in the county; such options to include at least an expansion of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center and reconfiguration and reprogramming of the existing Walkup Center facilities. Effects on private pools should be considered.”

A sum of $50,000 has been allocated in the FY 2009-2010 budget to perform a study that would produce a conceptual design and a cost/benefit study.
