New Pool Options

  • Project Overview

    In 2012 the voters of the Selah area passed an M&O levy which supported pool operations through 2018. This levy covers maintenance and operation costs; it does not provide funds for the construction of a new pool. The Selah Park and Recreation Service Area Board (SPRSA) is putting together a bond proposal, which is a special tax assessment for the construction of capital facilities, for the construction of a new public swimming pool, or pools, here in Selah. The Board's vision is to use as much of the existing pool space at Wixson Park as possible, while also increasing shade, grass, and family areas to provide more services for the public at large. The Board has reviewed community feedback from more than 350 citizens outlining some of the programs and priorities they have for Selah’s pool. A consultant was hired to estimate the cost of several pool designs based on the community feedback. Now we need your input! What would you like to see on the ballot in November? Please complete the following brief survey to share your opinion. Bond Options: The following options present a choice between two different sets of pool features, construction costs, and the additional property tax costs for homeowners for each option. Please choose whether you support the option, oppose it, or if you need more information. These designs do not represent the final engineered design.

  • Option 1: Construct a standard 25 yard pool with features and depths for swim lessons and recreational, competitive, and lap swimming. Additionally, there will be an interactive zero-entry pool for younger children, with a run-out slide, a second slide for older children and four-lane pool for programing and recreation. The site would also be expanded to provide more space for participants, families, and swim team activities. Cost: $5.2 million. This pool would cost the owner of a $200,000 home approximately $49.07 per year or $4.09 per month.
  • Option 2: Construct a standard 25 yard pool with features and depths for swim lessons and recreational, competitive, and lap swimming. Additionally, there will be an interactive zero-entry pool for younger children, and one run-out slide. Cost $4.2 million. This pool would cost the owner of a $200,000 home approximately $39.63 per year or $3.30 per month.
  • Seasonal Enclosure: One hundred and eighty one of the surveys collected requested year-round programing at our pool, including water aerobics and varsity swimming practices/meets. The cost to cover the 25 yard pool, in either design, with a seasonal enclosure would cost approximately $1 million and would need to be added to the cost of the previously described options. This structure would cost the owner of a $200,000 home approximately an additional $9.44 per year or $0.79 per month. Please Note: The construction of a seasonal enclosure would increase the operational costs of the pool. Our current M&O levy would need to increase from $120,000 annually to approximately $450,000. These additional maintenance and operation costs would need to be supported by our Selah area voters through larger M&O levies.
