Due to the existing 30-year old pool located in Mt. Lebanon Park facing physical obsolescence, the City of Mt. Lebanon commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker to perform a Feasibility Study for a new aquatic center. Since Mt. Lebanon is an active community, a swimming facility is an important hub to their social, recreational, and athletic needs and activities.
To meet specific demographic and marketplace demands for aquatic recreational experiences, Counsilman-Hunsaker developed several options and associated project costs for consideration and review. Each concept emphasized recreational aquatics that can be phased over time. Based on the analysis of these options, estimates for project costs, attendance, operating costs, and operating revenues were calculated and conveyed in the study.
Plans for a new aquatic center for Mt. Lebanon remain on track, but in an effort to hold the line on taxes, elected officials have removed the $5.3 million for pool construction from the bond issue included in the 2007 capital improvement budget.
