Sandusky City Schools Board of Education Approves Sandusky Aquatic Center Design
Sandusky, Ohio. During the Sandusky City Schools regular board meeting on January 10, 2023, board members voted to approve the Sandusky Aquatic Center schematic design and construction documents which were presented by the architectural firm, ThenDesign Architecture. The Sandusky Aquatic Center project will transform the current pool at Sandusky High School into a larger facility serving both students and community residents. The new pool facility will not only create a top-notch facility for Sandusky City Schools aquatic programs and offer all 3rd grade students the opportunity to learn to swim during the school day but will also be available for community programming and lap swimming.
The design that was approved during the board meeting features the following;
- A new 8-lane pool
- New spectator seating
- New family/community locker rooms
- New entrance and lobby
- Updated athletic locker rooms
- Additional storage spaces
- Converting the old pool room into a multipurpose room that will be utilized by Sandusky City Schools programs and the Sandusky Community
“This new, one pool design will assist us in meeting the needs of our students and community while also ensuring the district continues to be a good steward of district and community resources. The new Sandusky Aquatic Center will be a vast upgrade to the current pool that is over 60 years old.”, stated Board President Martha Murray.
“We are thankful for the hard work and dedication of everyone who has been involved in this project”, stated Mr. Thomas Patterson, Board Vice-President. “The Sandusky Aquatic Center is going to be an exceptional opportunity for our entire district and community.”
The next steps include the project Architect team completing all of the necessary construction documents and hosting community events to discuss the project. Currently, the estimated completion date of this project is December of 2024.
