Dimond Park Pool Task Force

A CBJ Task Force composed of approximately ten community members appointed by the Mayor to serve until the pool is open to the public.



On October 2, 2007 voters approved Proposition 4, authorizing the issuance of $19.8 million in general obligation bond debt for paying for the construction of a pool facility in Dimond Park.  A portion of this project will qualify for State reimbursement under the State's School Construction Bond Debt Reimbursement Program.


The Voter Information for October 2, 2007 Municipal Election stated that an approximately 33,700 sq. ft swimming facility would be constructed.  Plans call for 6-lane lap pool with diving board and a zero-entry warm water pool for learn-to-swim-programs, a reduced water recreation area, senior aerobics, and other water safety programs.  Locker rooms, spectator seating, mechanical rooms, and small administrative areas would also be constructed.


On October 13, 2007 at he CBJ Assembly Retreat, the Assembly updated the goal of "revised the strategy for construction of a Valley Community Center" to "monitor design, construction and management of Valley Pool."  The Assembly heard from staff that a pool task force would be working with CBJ Staff on design of the pool.



The purpose of the task force is to work with CBJ Staff including Parks & Recreation, Juneau School District and Engineering to:


Ensure the final facility plan is consistent with the CBJ Voter Information and ballot language.


Provide input and review Staffing and Management plan developed by Parks & Recreation and Juneau School District.


Determine an optimal facility design in order to maximize cost recovery including energy savings, recreation, aerobic, rentals and swim lesson components.


Provide progress reports and updates of Task Forces progress to CBJ Assembly, School District and Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee.



Meeting schedule will be determined at the first task force meeting.  All meetings are open to the public and advertised through the Municipal Clerk's office.


The committee will elect a chair, vice chair and secretary at the first meeting.


The task force shall follow the procedures used by the Assembly and other CBJ Boards and Commissions for transaction of its business, as interpreted by the City Attorney as necessary.  The task force shall keep a record of its meetings and determinations and written public comments received, which shall be filed by the Parks & Recreation Director or his designee.


A majority of the appointed membership of the task force shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.


The Parks & Recreation Director or his designee will provide staff support and assistance to the task force as appropriate and will coordinate task force activities.
