Wallowa Valley Aquatic Center Study
Wallowa County has not had a public pool since 2001. At the same time, there are numerous bodies of water surrounding the community, making water safety a necessity. The most recent census shows that the two fastest growing populations are adults over 65 years old and children under 17 years old.
Our goal is to contribute to the health, wellness and safety of our community and for future generations, through welcoming, fun, safe and affordable aquatic activities by building an indoor community aquatic center.
The Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness and Wallowa Memorial Hospital have engaged Ballard*King & Associates to complete a feasibility study. Ballard*King is a facility planning firm based out of Denver, CO.
The results from this survey, combined with other forms of public input, and a detailed market assessment, will be used to recommend facility components.
It is important to understand that this is an opportunity to provide feedback and dream about what an indoor aquatic facility could include. We want to create an efficient facility that meets our community's needs. It is also crucial to understand the financial willingness of our community to create a facility that will be sustainable for many generations to come.
The survey will take 5-10 minutes and all responses will remain confidential.
