Why do we need a new outdoor aquatic facility?
The existing all-aluminum swimming pool is 30 years old. Because of regular maintenance, it has already exceeded its expected lifespan. Over the years, the sub-surface has shifted creating large bubbles that need to be repaired. Annual maintenance, performed before the pool is filled is becoming increasingly complicated and expensive. And a major fissure in a seam in mid-season, which would require draining the pool, could occur at any time.
The existing pool was built when competitive pools were state of the art. Today, the trend is toward family aquatic centers that have warmer water, make entry easier for beginning swimmers and offer entertaining water features in addition to providing for lap swimming and competition A newer, more modern aquatic facility should increase attendance and revenues, helping to make the facility more self supporting.
What is the planning process for a new outdoor aquatic center?
The municipality hired a nationally recognized aquatic facility consultant, Counsilman-Hunsaker, to help guide us through the process. A feasibility study was completed and the consultants developed several options for consideration and discussion. In addition they provided cost estimates for construction as well as operation of an aquatic center. The municipal staff and the Mt. Lebanon Commission are considering the conclusions from the feasibility study.
How can I share my ideas for the facility with municipal staff and officials?
You can speak up at commission meeting, held the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month at 8 p.m. in the municipal building. You can talk with or e-mail your
How much will a new aquatic facility cost? How would it be funded?
A bond issue combined with grants and a fund-raising campaign would likely fund the center. Selling the naming rights might be considered.
If we decide to build the center, when would construction begin?
When the commission decides, but, the most cost-efficient and least disruptive approach would be to begin construction at the close of one swim season and open a new center the following summer.
I don't use the existing outdoor swimming pool. What's in this for me?
We hope that a new facility-one with warmer water that would be conducive to offering more varied programming-would attract people who have not previously used the swimming pool. If nothing more, a new outdoor aquatic facility should help to set our community apart from others, thus allowing us to continue to compete for new residents with other premier suburbs and ultimately increasing property values for all Mt. Lebanon residents.
What’s happening with the project now?
The commissioners are considering options from the study as well as renovating the existing facility.
