HELP PLAN THE FUTURE OF THE NEW CONCORD POOL
To: New Concord Area Community Supporters of the New Concord Area Pool
From: Mayor Jennifer Lyle
What: Community Engagement/Input Meeting #2 – “Create the Vision”
When: Thursday, November 4 at 7:00PM
Where: Village Hall
Thanks to a generous grant from the J.W. and M.H. Straker Charitable Foundation, the Village has embarked on a process to identify the future of a community pool for New Concord area residents. Our existing pool is over 60 years old and at the end of its lifespan. This has led to the question of how we wish to move forward as a community. To facilitate the process, we have engaged MSA Sport, a leading design/architecture firm with long aquatics experience.
The first session, held in July, included a presentation by MSA of the condition of the existing pool, benchmarking of aquatics facilities and possible pool amenities, followed by open dialogue with attendees to gather thoughts and ideas from the community, especially related to the possibility of building a new facility.
The November 4 session will focus on balancing budget, site, and pool amenities. MSA Sport will facilitate an interactive prioritization process that will help identify the key wants and needs of the community while also guiding a budget conversation. MSA will also present three concept plans based on the input from the July session. Attendees will be able to vote for the plan which best resembles their vision.
We hope you’ll join us.
