The public meeting will include a presentation from the pool design consultant, Asakura Robinson, on the key elements of a neighborhood pool, design constraints, and layout options. The community will have the opportunity to provide feedback and determine priorities for programming options at the pool.
The findings of the completed 2014 Aquatic Assessment identified Govalle Pool as a Critical Pool. The term, ‘critical pool’, refers to an aquatic facility that has the potential to functionally fail within the next five swim seasons. The classification was determined per the condition of the 60 year old facility. In September of 2014, City of Austin City Council awarded a onetime allocation to the Parks and Recreation Department’s Aquatic Division for refurbishment of Govalle Pool in the amount of $3,100,000.00.
Please join us to give input and get updates on our the new pool! This is an exciting project that has been years in the making.
If you can’t make it, please feel free to contact us with your ideas and we will forward them along to the City.
Hope to see you there!
