Bring a hybrid community pool to Liberty Hill

When considering the building of a community pool, the Parks and Recreations board should consider the best ways to generate profits and reach the most people in their community.  Liberty Hill’s growth over past decade has brought in a large number of people to our city from all walks of life.  The demand for a community pool has grown along with the population.  Up until the recent vote by the Parks and Rec. department, the revenue that a pool can generate has been shuffled off to surrounding cities like Georgetown, Cedar Park and Burnet.  While there is now a plan in action for the building of a pool, the city is missing out on revenues by not building a regulation size swimming pool.  There are many advantages that come with building a pool with regulation swim lanes.  It allows for the increased revenue of bringing in year round swim teams, masters swimming programs, swim lessons, recreational swimmers and partnerships with swim programs.  The city is missing out on a large group of people by not addressing Liberty Hill’s need for a pool with regulation swimming lanes.  The most successful way to bring revenue and keep a community pool generating profits is to offer diversity in the pool’s uses.  The current design the city is considering building does not allow for any swimming based revenue other than for leisure.  It will be much more economically effective to have pool that will encompass a variety of uses throughout the year rather than strictly as a summer facility.  The most profitable facilities will offer a hybrid pool where competition swimmers and leisure users alike, will benefit.
