You ask; we answer

We are watching your comments closely to see trends and when merited will add new questions and answers to our FAQs page. If you’re wondering what the difference is between an aquatic center and a waterpark or wondering why a private developer can’t build a new swim center, check out the FAQ tab at the top of the page.

We may not be able to answer all your questions on this web log, so we hope you’ll review the consultant’s final report on the feasibility study using the link at the right. Otherwise, keep checking this page or watch for updated information in upcoming issues of Mt. Lebanon Magazine. You may email questions (which may be answered here or by a staff member) to

Take a Good Look at Our Swim Center—and Others

As you sit in the winter chill anticipating next swim season, think constructively about our 50-meter outdoor pool, the baby pool, the sun bathing area, the snackbar, the dressing rooms, etc., and think about what needs to be added, eliminated or upgraded. Also, if you go somewhere interesting this winter, you may experience swimming pools or aquatic centers that you like or dislike. The consultants’ final report has been presented; now the commission and staff will begin its evaluation of the repor. There is still time to share your ideas about what sort of center will meet our community’s competitive, instructional, recreational and health/wellness needs. Post your comments here, contact your commissioner or speak out at a public commission meeting held the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 8 p.m. in the municipal building. Don’t forget to check out the consultant’s final report, using the tab at the right. Remember that these are only scenarios. During the design phase, changes could be made to any of these options.

What’s What in Aquatics?

Mt. Lebanon is considering building an outdoor aquatic center. An aquatic center is different from a competitive pool, although it would include a competitive element. And it is not a water park, although it could have some features found in water parks. We want to know what you would like to see in an aquatic center. But how do you know what you want, if you haven’t seen any of the state-or-the-art facilities that have been built around the country in recent years. What if you don’t know the difference between an aquatic center, a competitive pool, a leisure pool, a therapy pool or a water park? If you want to start dreaming, check out the new Aquatics International link at the right, which showcases of some of the top water facilities for 2005. Maybe we can’t have all the good stuff, but we probably can have some of it!
