Love the runway!
Angela Garza
01:25:33
was it confirmed whether this pool will be open all year around?
Alexandria Anderson
01:25:36
Like the design so far
Angela Garza
01:26:29
me too!
Latoya Payne
01:27:02
@Angela, I was thinking about that, it being heated for all year around like Bartholomew.
Latoya Payne
01:30:38
areas for birthday parties and picnics?
PARD Justin Schneider
01:31:55
Latoya, in this one, the bathhouse is the multipurpose room where you could have picnics and birthday parties.
Jennifer Hecker
01:33:05
I like the lane orientation of concept b
Patrick Beyer
01:36:56
In plan view, what is the red swirly structure between the pool and rain garden? is that a slide?
Lee Dawson Jr
01:38:13
What do you mean if you have the budget for the slide area
CCS, Liliana Tabasco
01:38:51
Please use the Givens PollsEverywhere Link: https://pollev.com/colonyparkpr331
Lee Dawson Jr
01:39:06
Are you going to make the restroom larger?
Barbara Scott
01:40:27
If this is Givens, why would they go to a link that refrences Colony Park
Lee Dawson Jr
01:40:27
Why is the link not Givens
Jennifer Hecker
01:40:50
I voted for A, but wish the lanes could be oriented N-S

Lee Dawson Jr
01:44:35
You are directing us to Colony Park this seems to be a way to confuse the public
Barbara Scott
01:45:23
Thank you Mr. Dawson for pointing that out
Stephanie Touchstone
01:48:30
Sorry, I'm just now able to get it via Zoom. Was on the phone so didn't get to see the design options.
Angela Garza
01:48:44
I noticed eight people voted and there are about 50 people in the meeting.
Angela Garza
01:48:56
having challenges voting.
Pinaki Ghosh
01:49:58
shade should be a priority
Melonie House-Dixon MLKNA Chair
01:50:15
What consideration addresses traffic flow into the pool area
Lee Dawson Jr
01:50:26
I like the shade over the kids area the slide and play are is a must for the Givens pool
Jennifer Hecker
01:50:35
I missed the 1st meeting, but was able to submit my input afterward. Thanks for making that possible after this meeting is over, as well.
Erica
01:50:38
Is there a place where we can see the renderings again?
Pinaki Ghosh
01:51:30
Its great that lap lanes are completely seperate
Erica
01:51:31
Sorry yes, I was interested in the 3d renderings we saw that aren’t included in the pdf
PARD Justin Schneider
01:52:21
Thanks, Angela. I was mentioning that there are about 23-25 people who are a part of the project team. I believe we ended up with about 14 on the polling numbers.
Lee Dawson Jr
01:52:33
I don't like the lap area going N and S it takes away from the diving area
Stephanie Touchstone
01:52:46
I really like to North/South lap lanes Concept B
Pinaki Ghosh
01:53:11
in the past kids coming into lap lanes was a big challenge
PARD Kasey Corpus
01:53:16
A copy of the presentation and a recording of this meeting will be available on the project webpage (https://www.austintexas.gov/GivensPool)
Stephanie Touchstone
01:56:06
I like the Rain Garden. Is that an option in Concept B? I didn't see that.
Pinaki Ghosh
01:56:19
the most challenging thing about this pool is shade
Lee Dawson Jr
01:56:26
I like the entry point the shade area the Mutli purpose looks to be smaller but I like where it is if you can you it for different events
Lee Dawson Jr
01:57:59
What about lighting?
Lee Dawson Jr
01:58:13
What about lighting
Pinaki Ghosh
01:58:15
None of these have enough shade
Stephanie Touchstone
01:58:52
So, a Rain Garden is not in Concept B?
Pinaki Ghosh
01:59:52
will you charge a fee like couple of other pools
Latoya Payne
01:59:56
I like that all are ADA accessible...
Stephanie Touchstone
02:00:05
Will there be a mini "Schiltterbaum" theme like Rosewood and Bartholomew?
Mitzi Wright
02:00:45
Very nice graphics and pictutes.
Jennifer Hecker
02:02:09
+1 to sloped lawn areas!
Angela Garza
02:04:09
question: other than time period art how will folks be educated on the history of the pool and park?
Jennifer Hecker
02:04:42
Love the separate changing rooms, come to think of it.
Lee Dawson Jr
02:05:55
Will there be a baby changing station in the mens room
Lee Dawson Jr
02:07:17
Tell us what the top 5 are
Stephanie Touchstoen
02:09:28
Lololol. That was funny Justin!
Angela Garza
02:09:34
does the budget of 6 million dollars go entirely to the pool? or is that part to the consulting team?
Angela Garza
02:10:48
thank you!
Lee Dawson Jr
02:11:16
To include the City Employees budget during these Town Hall Meetings
Angela Garza
02:12:28
thank you 🙏🏽
Angela Garza
02:13:01
is it possible to use native citizen’s voices. notable.
Lisa Roebuck
02:14:04
Sorry for the delayed response, but I like concept C since it has 8 swim lanes instead of just 6 like the others and still preserves the diving area. I also appreciate that you are planning to keep the existing structure.
Angela Garza
02:16:43
That was Melonie. traffic question.
Lee Dawson Jr
02:17:06
Are you tearing out the old pool or are you planning on using it?
Brian Episcopo
02:19:05
Ok, so from a human perspective, Concept C = two separate pools
Logan Saldivar
02:19:33
Would love to see bubblers or sprayers near zero entry or open swim areas. Creates fun play elements without a separate splash pad area or separate mechanical systems.
Erica
02:20:07
Would it be more expensive to heat a pool later down the line rather than planning for it from the start?
Angela Garza
02:20:19
Yes Logan.
Lee Dawson Jr
02:21:02
Why the pool was shut down because of massive water leaks
Angela Garza
02:21:15
Fun for kids.
Logan Saldivar
02:24:04
Thank you! Love to participate and thankful for the City listening and moving the project forward. We're very excited to see the pool open again.
