Pool Consideration Committee Needs Your Input!
The DeKalb Park District recently formed an ad hoc Pool Consideration Committee. The mission of the committee is to review information, analyze data, and consider public input to provide a final report to the Park Board with recommendations for the future of Hopkins Park Aquatic Center.
The committee is currently comprised of two Park Board members, and a mixture of staff, pool users, and community members. The committee recognizes that public input and dialog is essential to giving sound recommendations to the Park Board. The public is invited and encouraged to attend committee meetings. Each meeting will follow an agenda with time set aside for public input.
Meetings will be held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 6:30pm on the 2nd floor of the Hopkins Park Community Center.
