In 2015, Counsilman-Hunsaker performed a Needs Assessment, Program Requirements, and Financial Performance Study to help the city with specific information for the design of a new outdoor aquatic center. Three options were developed to meet the aquatic needs. Each option included a conceptual drawing, project cost, and pro forma.
In 2017, the new 7,500 sq. ft. aquatic center opened to the public and included a competition pool, slides, and lazy river. The competition pool is set to host swimming lessons, swim team practices, swim meets and water basketball games.
Counsilman-Hunsaker also performed Pre-Opening Services including an assessment of operational needs, produced a Standard Operational Procedures Manual and trained management team on the following:
- Operational procedures, including opening, daily, and closing duties of all staff
- Orientations, weekly in-services, emergency action plans, evaluations, and documentations
- Maintenance needs and practices, including daily cleaning, water quality management, and weekly pool and amenity upkeep
