Do you support a new pool?

Yes, I’m supportive of a new pool, as it’s one of our most used recreation facilities – and well used by all ages – plus it teaches a life-saving skill. The public consultation is just wrapping up, and then the Aquatic Centre Advisory Committee will be bringing forward a recommendation to Council (i.e. to go with a new stand-alone pool or renovate the current one, and whether to go with a 25m or 50m pool). Once the recommendation comes to Council, I’ll be evaluating it to make sure that it fits the need of as many residents as possible (from young families to seniors) and that the annual operating costs are reasonable so that it will be affordable for residents to access.
