A: We are on target to open the first week of June. Three major pieces of work remain before we can open the lap pool and bathhouse. One, we need to complete the storm water management system that involves burying tanks and drains under the front parking lot and front driveway. That work must be complete so that vehicles (and our members) can have safe access. Two, we need to pour the concrete pool deck – that will happen in 4 or 5 phases, beginning with the far side of the pool, near the volleyball court. It’s like painting the floor of a room – you need to start in a corner and finish at the door. The ”door,” where trucks have level access to the site, is right near the back gate. Finishing this major piece of work will allow the contractor to pull most of the equipment out of the way of the lower parking area and away from the back gate, so we can safely enter there. Third, we need to install fencing to enclose the pool, and to temporarily enclose the ongoing construction. When these pieces are in place, we should be able to pass the building permit and health department inspections mentioned in earlier Q&As.
|Workers are installing the “coping tile,” which finishes the edge of the pool. This tile must be in place before we pour the concrete for the pool deck.|
