Counsilman-Hunsaker and Kimley- Horn & Associates developed a presentation for Purcell’s City Council and presented three options with various leisure amenities, explored the potential operational expenses and revenues for each concept, and the potential use by various community groups. The team also reviewed aquatic trends across the country, as well as researched the local demographics of the Purcell community. Additionally, demographic information about population, age, and income levels surrounding various sites within the community was provided to help guide the site selection process.
In 2017, Counsilman-Hunsaker, in association with Kimley-Horn, was authorized by the City of Purcell to provide an audit of the Purcell Pool. The audit identified items for the 1975 pool that were substandard or not operating as designed, and provided recommendations to get the facility operational again, as it had been closed since 2014.
