Aquatics plan gets a task force
Friday, August 18, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
Despite some protests that there was no need for a task force to look at the Aquatic Master Plan, given the extensive, years-long process that led to its creation, City Council created just that on Thursday. Council voted 10-0 to create the force, with Council Member Ann Kitchen absent for the vote. Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo, who was a sponsor of the resolution that created the task force, explained that the group was not intended to rewrite the master plan, but rather that a small working group could provide some insight to the hefty 154-page report. After a (lot of) discussion, the group’s tasks include recommendations on how to prioritize investment in aquatics and recommendations for closures.
