Pool & Wellness Site Study & Analysis Necessary

Posted on July 26, 2016

From 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Friday, July 29, contractors will scrape the surface soil from the new Pool & Wellness Center location so that bedrock can be analyzed and studied in an effort to develop detailed plans and costs of the new facility. They will be able to study the bedrock to understand the excavation work that will need to be completed in order to build the Pool & Wellness Center.

For the safety of Lakesiders, we will be placing a fence around the entire perimeter of the site. The fencing is needed to keep people safely off the exposed rock and to allow additional survey work during August. This preliminary work is a necessary next step in developing detailed costs, plans and timelines so a final decision can be made in the near future.

The following locations in Lakeside will allow individuals and families to continue to play sports, kick balls and throw Frisbees while this work is being completed: Cherry Park open space, the space west of the Lakeside Schoolhouse, Central Park and the lawn areas west of the Pavilion.

To learn more about the Pool & Wellness Center, all are invited to the future site of the facility, located in the open field next to the Williams Tennis Campus at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 30 and Saturday, Aug. 6. Volunteers will help answer questions, share plans related to the future Pool & Wellness Center and report progress on the fundraising campaign and timeline.
