The City of Salem is undergoing a study to determine the best site and design to provide a new pool and associated  facilities at Forest River Park.  The architect, BH+A, is leading a team of landscape architects, coastal wetland specialists, structural engineers, historic preservationists, and other consultants to develop a preferred intitial design, cost and schedule.  The City and designer are working with stakeholders, including neighbors, City Councilors, YMCA, Salem Sound Coastwatch, South Salem Neighborhood Association and community members during the design process.  The team will determine the preferred option(s) and present to the Park & Recreation Commission for review and comment.  The City is also looking into various funding sources for actual construction of the pool.  Once funding is secured, final design, permitting and construction is expected to take a year and a half.
