City hosts meetings for Aquatic Master Plan

Monday, March 7, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

The Parks and Recreation Department is hosting two open house meetings this week to gather input on the Aquatic Master Plan, which will ultimately help guide city planning for improvements and programming at Austin’s pools. The feedback gathered at the meetings is intended to “help a team of architects, pool industry experts and city staff lay out a 20-year vision for Austin’s pools and waterplay areas,” according to an announcement about the meetings, which are kicking off Phase III of the master planning effort. The focus in this phase is on using the pool assessment data from Phase I and the community feedback from Phase II to “develop criteria and planning tools” to be used going forward. The first meeting will be held today, March 7, 4:30 to 8 p.m., at the Dove Springs Community Recreation Center, 5801 Ainez Drive. The second will be on Tuesday, March 8, 4:30 to 8 p.m., at the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center, 7201 Colony Loop Drive. Both meetings will be family-friendly, and participants may arrive at any time. Input can also be submitted through an online survey, available in both English and Spanish.
