The meeting was then opened to discuss possible changes to the pool and what needs to be done to bring the area up to code…Terra Design Group (Walter Hurd and Mark Sapp) presented a power point presentation. Regarding to pool itself the structural team found it to be in pretty sound shape but needs leveling and resurfacing (relining), plumbing and drainage needs upgrading.
The restrooms need to be upgraded to meet ADA design which will do away with the refreshment stand.

The mechanical building will be demolished.
Parking,fencing will all be upgraded…ADA access…there will be decking ,lighting and landscaping…it was mentioned a waterjet area for the younger set (older too)
It was mentioned that this bond that covers the redo is limited in funds and only so much money is available now.
