“POOL RENEWALS”

The Aquatics Feasibility Study
(involved both outdoor pools)

In a continuing effort to provide the best and most cost-effective aquatic opportunities for the Centre Region, CRRA has, with grant assistance from DCNR, funded two studies that research what improvements should and could be made to the Park Forest Community Swimming Pool (built in 1970) and William L. Welch Community Swimming Pool (opened in 1959).

Resident Survey Results (July 2000)       Public Hearing Summaries (May 2001)

AQUATICS FACILITY STUDY (2002)

Funded with a $7,500 grant from PA DCNR, a $1,000 contribution from the State College Area Family YMCA, and local municipal contributions. This study was prepared by Water Technology Inc., Beaver Dam, WI.
Additional information was then requested by the municipal officials, so an extended study was then initiated.

EXTENDED AQUATICS STUDY (2004):

On Aug. 2004, the CRRA / CRPR Board endorsed and released the Extended Aquatics Study by Water Technology, Inc. for consideration by the members of the COG General Forum and the public.
