These 2 documents were prepared by Burbach Aquatics and presented to the City of La Crosse Pool Committee on January 11th, 2017 regarding an evaluation of competing area aquatic facilities and the types of pool features for a future pool.
2 key findings of Burbach’s leading research that aligned with the recommendations in the GENA ISG report include:
1. The Memorial Pool site is #1, as rated for their total score on 18 engineering categories by Burbach, over Forest Hills (2nd) & Myrick Park (3rd)
2. The #1 demand is for an outdoor recreation pool – like GENA recommends for Memorial Pool. Burbach also reported that indoor water area demand is 44% lower (+4,919) than for an outdoor recreation pool AND the current water area at large regional aquatic facilities exceeds demand by 27% (-12,437 sq ft)
