Pool Area Plan
Assessment will provide a budget of $200,000 to the Pool committee to
make the following proposed upgrades for the pool area.
Please note that the
purpose of the upgrades is to bring the bathrooms up to code and to
maximize usable space of the overall pool area. We are proposing
relocating the bathroom to the area between the tennis courts and pool
and believe this will provide a better overall neighborhood park
PI Architects have
graciously provided a design for our pool area upgrade. Please
see the Western Oaks website for a Rendering and Plan. The
concept proposed comprises a new smaller 234 sf bathroom structure with
1 ADA compliant bathroom and 2 similar bathrooms with showers,
approximate size will be 6’ wide by 11’ long inside and will be single
use only. Included in the structure will be a small 6’ x 4’ room
for a water heater and cleaning supplies. The structure will abut
to the Pump House between the Tennis Court and the Pool. The Pump
House roof will be removed and a new flat roof sloped away from the
pool will cover both structures (see Rendering on Website for clarity).
The proposal also includes:
The existing baby
pool cover will remain in place for now. We will consider adding a
sloped entry section of the baby pool if there are funds to do so,
allowing little kids to easily walk in to the pool instead of jumping
in. Note that this was a neighborhood favorite per the survey we
published last year, and a sloped entry is common for current baby
- Installing a 17’ x 12’ building for the swim team storage using
the same flat roof. Total roof size with storage building will be
80’ x 22’.
- Replacing the existing pergola with a 60’ to 80’ x 20’ flat roof.
This will include relocating ~50’ to 75’ of existing fence, and provide
1200 to 1600 sf of shade for everyone to enjoy. We plan on
leaving the existing pavilion structure in place and utilizing it as a
grilling area and alternate picnic area.
- Repairing the pool concrete and expansion joints as well as covering the rough concrete with Kool Deck or similar material.
At this time we plan
on demolishing the existing bathroom structure, the pergola, 50 to 75
LF of fence and the pump house roof. If deemed a necessity, we
will replace the link portion of the outer fence. We have had
several instances of vandalism in the last few years and the low fence
is part of it.
Again, we hope to have good budget costs for everything next week.
I want to give high praise to our Pool Upgrade team! They are doing a great job for us all. Thank you all.
