Following investigations and input from the Community Reference Group who were involved in forums in relation to Aquatic Swimming Facilities for Port Lincoln, a Strategy has been developed.
The next step in the process is to seek wider community endorsement of the proposed Indoor Swimming Facility concept, prior to Council endorsing the Strategy as the basis for a feasibility study. The feasibility study, which is budgeted for in the 2013/2014 financial year, will involve engagement of expert consultants in the field of community swimming facilities. As well as looking at initial design and construction costs of a facility, they will report on operational models and financial impacts and viability.
An Aquatic Swimming Facility will be one of the biggest projects for the Port Lincoln Community for a number of years and it is imperative that investigations are thorough, broad and inclusive.
TO ENSURE THAT THE PORT LINCOLN CITY COUNCIL UNDERSTANDS THE IMPORTANCE OF A POOL TO OUR CLUB AND ALLOCATES $60,000 TO COMPLETE THE FEASIBILITY STUDY IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU COMPLETE THE SURVEY - IT TAKES LESS THAN 5 MINUTES!
The survey is live for 28 days until the 21st of July 2013.
