The Parks Replacement Bond-funded electrical systems project is completed. Roof replacement work will begin in summer 2020.
Matt Dishman Indoor Pool and Spa received major repairs and renovation thanks to the Parks Replacement Bond. Due to a small part of this project (spa expansion) being eligible for System Development Charge (SDC) funding, the Parks SDC Fund contributed $10,000.
The project included resurfacing the pool, which addressed hollow locations behind the plaster and cracks in the sub-surface of the pool floor.
It also completely replaced the spa (which was leaking 1,000 gallons of water per day) with a larger capacity spa that can hold up to 20 users. The spa’s mechanical systems including piping, filters, chemical controllers, and chlorine systems have been replaced, and a new ultra-violet filtering system has been added. The three existing fiberglass sand filters for the pool have also been replaced with one high-efficiency filter.
Work was completed in October 2016.
Built in 1940, the community center’s electrical system is outdated and undersized. This project will replace components of the electrical system that are more than 40 years old. Improvements will increase safety and reliability of the electrical system. Construction is planned for spring 2019 - summer 2019.
Planned improvements include:
The electrical project will require temporary maintenance closures at Matt Dishman Community Center in March 2019.
Here is the schedule for temporary maintenance closures:
Several areas of the Matt Dishman Community Center roof have been identified as being in poor condition, and there is evidence of water damage within the building from these areas. This project will investigate and repair the roof. This work is not expected to impact daily activities at the community center, but visitors may notice noise, odors, and other construction impacts.
Roof replacement is planned for summer 2020.
