Pool & Wellness Site Study & Analysis - Friday, July 29
From 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Frida y, 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 dev elop detailed plans and costs of the new facility. They will be able to study the bedr ock 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 Pa rk and the lawn areas west of the Pavilion.
