Aquatics Center Planning

Aquatics Center Planning

One of the top three priorities for future development identified in the 2017 District Comprehensive Plan is the need for an aquatics facility. We are now conducting a feasibility study to explore options for expansion of the existing aquatics facility or development of a new facility. Where should a new pool be located? What kind of facility should we build? How can we make a good investment? These are some of the questions we will be asking this year as we study the feasibility of a new aquatic center. A feasibility study will guide us to a solution that provides a long term sustainable building that is community driven.

Community Outreach Schedule:

We can't make this happen without you! We need park district residents and pool users to participate in the planning process. Your input is needed!

There will be three public engagements during the planning process for the Si View Aquatic Center - two public meetings and a survey.

January 31, 2019, 7:00PM:
Community Meeting at Si View Community Center
February-March 2019:
Community Survey
April 18, 2019, 7:00PM:
Community Meeting, location TBA
  • Come to our vision meeting on January 31 at 7:00 p.m. at the Si View Community Center 400 SE Orchard Drive. The first public meeting will be a workshop with two goals: to confirm community support for a new Aquatic Center and to hear community opinions about the future location and amenities that they want for the new facility. Let's talk about what type of new facility the community wants and where it should be located. Bring the kids! We would love to hear what kids want and there will be coloring pages for little ones.
  • Take the survey! A survey will be the second engagement, to ask the community about their willingness to support the ideas that come out of the workshop. Look for an online survey in February on this page. Stay tuned for details.
  • Help us review options on April 18 at 7:00, location to be announced. The final public workshop will encourage participants to weigh in on alternative options, and help us create an initial design for the facility. This one will be family-friendly as well.

Public input gathered throughout the three engagements will shape the alternatives and inform the analytical work needed to plan the future aquatic center.
