To meet the growing aquatic needs of the entire community, the City of Grandview retained Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide aquatic options regarding the physical obsolescence of the Meadowmere and John Anderson Pools.
Counsilman-Hunsaker provided extensive research including meetings with members of the City of Grandview, the Study Committee, Grandview Parks and Recreation staff, the community, and other parties with interest in aquatics in the City of Grandview. Counsilman-Hunsaker was commissioned to perform a Swimming Pool Audit on the pools prior to the Aquatic Master Plan.
The Aquatic Master Plan included information and opinions developed from discussions with area aquatic providers; a visit to the existing pool sites; demographics of the market area; a tour of the community; a review of national trends in aquatic recreation, instruction and competition; the development of construction costs in the local area; and an analysis of how all this phenomena will impact aquatic operations in the City of Grandview.
The purpose of the study was to identify and evaluate current aquatic programming and to establish a needs analysis for aquatic spaces and programming for the city's future. Four concepts for continuing aquatic improvement for the City of Grandview were developed for construction and project cost, as well as revenue projections and operational expenses.
