Update on Prop. 1 – Aquatic Center and Park Improvements

The Shoreline Pool has a full program of
swim lessons, up to Red Cross certification

By Jamie Holter

Because Shoreline’s Prop. 1, the Aquatic Center and Park Improvements proposition, was approved by a majority of Shoreline voters (54 percent) but not by enough to pass the bond measure requirement (60 percent), supporters of a new aquatic center are wondering what’s next.

City leaders are starting the discussion now. They are weighing how much to invest in an old pool that is at the end of its life. The discussion ranges from putting the measure to voters again in the future or discontinuing the aquatic program altogether.

Staff spent more than two years gathering input and information and have a good sense of what people want, but they aren’t ruling out more public meetings or new ideas. They do want the public to stay engaged in the process by signing up for parks news alerts.

They will continue to operate recreation programs at the Spartan Center until the school district decides they want to use the space for something else. At this time, the school district has no plans for another use.

How can we get Lake Forest Park to help fund this pool if they are a part of our school district then they should be a part of this text bond

I agree with the first comment. Lake Forest Park should help fund the pool since they are in our district and they use it, as well as the senior center!

I would prefer the Shoreline Center to be a community Center serving Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. Locate new pool, gym and senior center there.

Agree and go back and scale down a touch. I personally feel nickeled and dimed with the the SDOT lightrail etc right now.
