Council Plan 2017 – 2021
Thank you to everyone who made a submission recently to the Council Plan. 46 submissions were received about the pool out of a total of 68 submitted! In response, the Council Plan now includes a new action to “continue to support the Apollo Bay community’s advocacy for the development of a public indoor heated swimming pool in Apollo Bay”.
Harbour Development
The Market Testing report will be presented to the August Council meeting. Regardless of the outcome, realistically, it will take many years for a pool to be built, if at all. So, as we announced a couple of months ago, we have been working to assess the feasibility of heating and enclosing the current pool at the school.|
School Pool
Currently with the valuable help of Damien Byrne and working with the school, we are costing the heating of the pool and a structure to enclose it. We are awaiting a response from the Education Department, after which, we hope to proceed by preparing a business model to present to Council by November.
Memberships are now due
Please renew your membership only $1 or join if you’re not already a member for just $2 at our Community Bank. It would be great to be able to boast a large membership when we present to Council in a couple of months.
We are postponing our AGM until later in the year when we hope to have some announcements as to our progress.
