Alternative futures to be presented at public meetings on October 11 and 12
After gathering community input through public workshops, focus groups and the online Aquatics Commenting Tool (ColumbiaPools.org/ACT); consulting with aquatics experts to better understand industry trends and best practices; and examining existing conditions, trends, and challenges, Columbia Association (CA) staff has generated two alternative futures for CA aquatics. These alternatives, also called scenarios, will be shared in September with the CA Board of Directors and the Aquatics Master Plan Task Force, and with the community through two public meetings in October. Community participation in these public meetings is essential as there are different options to consider. Only after selecting or developing a preferred alternative will the master plan be developed. The plan development will occur in the third and final stage of the master planning process, which will begin later this fall.
Public meetings will be held on Tuesday, October 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Slayton House, located at 10400 Cross Fox Lane; and Wednesday, October 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Owen Brown Community Center, located at 6800 Cradlerock Way. Both meetings will feature the same content.
