Background Discussion

At the City of Palmetto commission meeting on February 27, 2017, the city commission voted to work with the County on developing a partnership with the goal of working together to have a community aquatics facility at Lincoln Park.

On March 7, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners approved Lincoln Park as the site for the community aquatic facility and directed staff to work with the City of Palmetto to develop the design, construction, and funding of a community aquatic facility.

At the Palmetto City Council meeting on April  21, 2017, the City Commission approved making a contribution toward a pool at the Lincoln Park site of $850,000, to be provided over a 15 year time period.  In addition the City Commission would donate the land at Lincoln Park to be used for the pool project (approximately 4 acres) to the county.
