The Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission (APRC) through the efforts of the Pool Ad Hoc Committee is evaluating the need for a renovation or replacement of Daniel Meyer Memorial Pool. As part of this process, APRC and the Ad Hoc Committee need to hear from you! Two workshops will be held to assess the needs and desires of Ashland citizens for pool renovation or replacement.
The workshops will be held on:
Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the Ashland Senior Center, 1699 Homes Ave.
Thursday, March 21, 2019, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at The Grove, 1195 East Main St.
Please plan to attend a workshop session to provide your input and perspective on Ashland’s aquatic and swimming facility needs:
How can aquatic/swimming facilities best serve Ashland?
What programming and features would you like to see?
The workshops will be interactive, with all attendees given an opportunity to present their ideas to the Committee.
Background: Daniel Meyer Memorial Pool opened in 1984, with funding spearheaded by a local resident who wanted to make sure all Ashland children learned to swim, after his son drowned. Renovations will be needed to keep the pool operational due to deteriorating conditions of the facility. In response to the need for renovation and recent closures of pools in the area and the Pool Ad Hoc Committee was formed and charged by APRC with assessing needs and exploring options for renovating the Daniel Meyer Memorial Pool or replacing it. The Committee findings will be provided to APRC.
