Shipe/Govalle pool repairs update

Friday, May 1, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

For those curious about the progress of repairs to Shipe and Govalle pools: A representative for the Parks and Recreation Department tells us that renovations are currently in the initial planning phases. City Council appropriated $6.2 million during this last budget cycle for the badly needed repairs. So far, the Contract Management Department has provided the scope of the project. In the next 90-120 days, the city will solicit a Request for Qualifications, evaluate responses to that RFQ and interview finalists. After that process is complete, Parks officials expect that it will take another 60 days for them to start on the design, though a concrete timeline won’t be available until the process is further along.
