Public engagement consultations regarding the Sam Ketcham Memorial Pool in Williams Lake will take place on June 8 and 9 in several locations around the city.

Consultants from Professional Environmental Recreation Consultations Ltd. (PERC) have been contracted to develop the pool feasibility study and will set up booths and showcase several options for a renovated or new pool. The consultants will also provide information regarding the costs and benefits related to each option. The city says this is an opportunity for community members to provide their opinions and feedback to the consultants.

“We are very much looking forward  to this next phase of the feasibility study, and to hearing the public’s input,” says Coun. Laurie Walters, chair of the city’s community services committee.

Cariboo Regional District Area F director Joan Sorley adds: “The consolation phase of the feasibility study is extremely important. It is an opportunity for members of the community and the fringe areas of electoral areas D, E, and F to learn about the proposed project, and provide opinions regarding options being considered.”
