The City of Alexandria issued a Request for Proposals (pdf) on March 22nd for the design of the replacement pool at Warwick. This is the first contractual step to getting that new pool open by the summer of 2017! It also shows the impact that AAA has had on aquatics in the City. Instead of just shutting down the old pool for safety concerns, the City and the City Council worked with AAA to identify the funds to build a replacement pool. First Warwick; then Chinquapin; and then Old Town – things are looking up for Alexandria aquatics!
