Update on Ambrose Park Master Plan/Pool Project
The Ambrose Recreation & Park District Board of Directors held four special community meetings between May – September 2013 to take public input on the Ambrose Park Master Plan. While the Board received a variety of comments and suggestions about the plan and what people would like to see in the park, the overwhelming priority expressed by the community was to rehabilitate and reopen the existing pool facility.
The Board indicated it had heard the public’s concern about the pool loud and clear when it directed the Interim General Manager to do all things necessary to get Ambrose Park pool and buildings rehabilitated and reopened within the existing pool budget as soon as feasible. Approximately $1.5 million is available for the pool project.
A number of things must occur before the pool and buildings can be reopened. Not all of these things can be done unilaterally by the District. There are other partners that the Board and District must rely on and work with, such as funders like East Bay Regional Park District and the City of Pittsburg. There are design firms and contractors that must be found and brought under contract. There are government regulations that must be adhered to. Nonetheless, the Board and District staff members are committed to getting the pool and buildings reopened as quickly as possible.
A Request For Proposals (RFP) has been developed to solicit proposals from professional design firms to design and produce construction documents for the rehabilitation of the pool. It is expected a design firm will be selected and under contract to the District before the end of calendar year 2013. From that point, it is anticipated the pool will be reopened in 18 – 26 months.
