Thank you to all who took the online survey in the spring and provided input regarding The Big Pool. The proposals for design and cost estimates the City of Garden City received during our Request for Proposal process are included below. Three firms submitted proposals. The community’s input on those proposals is requested. Please review the proposals and complete the survey by rating them 1-3 (1 being your favorite and 3 being your least favorite).
During the interview process of each of the three firms, staff will ask questions about the cost of an enclosed facility, local smaller swimming pools, splash parks (from the two firms that did not include that information) and any other aquatic projects/ideas that were discussed by the community during our original input process so that a full packet can be provided to the City Commission.
Questions may be submitted for consideration during the interview process, please email Pool.Redesign@gardencityks.us.
