Pool season might be coming to an end, but in Dublin people are picturing themselves poolside on a hot, sunny day.
That's because the city is redesigning Dublin Community Pool North, and we're asking residents to provide input.
The pool at 5660 Dublinshire Drive, next to Wyandot Elementary School, has served the community for 30 years.
If you can remember the song "Roll With It" by Steve Winwood, you probably remember when North Pool opened.
It was the top song on opening day, June 15, 1988.
As you can imagine, after 30 years, the pool is overdue for a major renovation.
We're asking members of the community to help shape the next 30 years by providing input.
Renovations include updates to the leisure pool, lap pool and main bathhouse, and features that bring the pool up to date with current industry standards.
Upgrades could include diving platforms, water slides and zero-depth entry, where the entry gradually slopes from the deck into the water in the manner of a natural beach.
We're asking members of the community to weigh in on the features and amenities they would like to see at the pool.
The public is invited to learn more about the project and provide input at one of two public meetings held at the Dublin Community Recreation Center (5600 Post Road).
The meetings will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 and Oct. 3.
More information and an online survey are available at dublinohiousa.gov/northpool.
