We have it pretty good here in Columbia when it comes to pools. Indoor, outdoor, waterslides, you name it, we got it. But every once in a while you have to take a step back and make sure things are up to par. After all, some of our pools have been around a long time. Not to mention, some are underutilized while others overcrowded.

That’s why CA is preparing an Aquatics Master Plan. It will document existing conditions of Columbia’s aquatics facilities and programs; assesses the future needs of residents and other users; and make recommendations for future investments in aquatics venues and associated programs.

This week, CA is holding 2 workshops where you will have a chance to be heard. The first is Tuesday, March 29 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at The Other Barn in Oakland Mills, and the other is Wednesday, March 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Hawthorn Community Center in Hickory Ridge.
