The city-hired consultant firm Ward Associates presented the final rendering for the Veterans Memorial pool bath house renovations at the June 6 Committee of the Whole meeting.
The renovations will cost $300,000, with $250,000 in capitol improvement funds and $50,000 in GAP funds earmarked for the project. The project is expected to be completed for the summer 2012 swimming season.
The renovation will bring the bathhouse up to compliance with recent code updates by providing new fixtures, wall tiles, windows, security doors, an updated electrical panel and other items. It will also include improvements to the building entryway and to the inside of the men’s and women’s bathhouses.
Specific renovations will include:
-Entrance side will have double entries with large windows
-Glass block windows added on entrance and pool sides
-Walls will be cleaner up and a stucco/cement finish will be applied
-Fixtures will be replaced
-New tiling in toilet areas
-Easy to clean and maintain surfaces installed
-Upgrading the electrical panel
The council discussed replacing the metal front doors with something more aesthetically appealing, such as glass doors.
