Today the Streamwood Park District announced updates to the ongoing pool renovations at the Aquatic Center at Park Place Family Recreation Center in partnership with RUSH Physical Therapy, 550 S. Park Blvd.
SPA POOL RENOVATIONS
The State of Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) requires pool renovations to have an IDPH permit. The permit requires calculations and stamped drawings prepared by a professional aquatic engineer. The Streamwood Park District entered into a contract last July with WT Aquatic Engineering and the process is nearly complete. The District has also submitted a grant application for the project in the amount of $300,000 to the State of Illinois’ Department of Economic Opportunity (DCEO). These funds, when awarded, will cover most of the anticipated project budget cost of $350,000. The Streamwood Park District would like to thank Illinois Representative Fred Crespo for his assistance in securing the state funding.
Supply chain issues continue to affect the park district and its operations. The original engineers’ project estimate was $200,000 just 18 months ago. Labor, materials, and concrete have all dramatically increased in price since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
Once the IDPH permit and final grant agreement are secured, the project will be opened for public bid and construction. The estimated timeline for this is expected to occur at the end of 2023 or early 2024.
LAP POOL AND ACTIVITY POOL
Staff have secured pricing estimates to resurface both pools and replace the original DiamondBrite surface. The estimated cost to resurface both pools is $150,000. This cost is separate from the Spa Pool replacement cost. Staff are hoping to coordinate both project timelines to minimize pool closures. If it is not possible to coordinate both projects, then the work will be phased to reduce pool closures.
