Plans for Visitors and Members Swim Area Expanded due to anticipated usage
By Jeanette Koechner - Resource Development Director
The area designated for spectators and swimmers has been redesigned due to the anticipated usage and the fact that the pool will be occupied by swimmers and divers, during our down time, by Lindenwood University. Their involvement in the project is of monumental importance. By enlarging the area it will be possible to hold and host swim meets at the facility, whereas now, we much depend on other pools and facilities. We will be able to provide swim instructions and competition for many more boys and girls club members. They will be able to practice and qualify for competitive events and pursue college scholarships.
Expanding the area did call for a change in the steel shipment for the new structure. This change, however, did not involve any other aspect of the facility. Plans to break ground within the next couple of months are still on target.
