Hal Moe Pool Site Master Planning

Remove the Building, Develop a Park?


2013 0221 HalMoePoolexistingConditions (11)After studying the site and building remodel options compared to the community’s stated preferences, the Hal Moe Pool Advisory Committee is recommending the City move to demolish the existing building and continue master planning the site as a park.  

The recommendation is a discussion item at the June 20 City Council meeting. City staff along with ARC Architects will present information about the Hal Moe Building. Anyone with interest in the future of the building and Averill Youth Complex (Averill Field) is encouraged to attend.

The Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) fund allocation of $700,000 would be used to remove the building, fill the existing pools, and return the site to usable park land. 

The Committee would continue master planning the site with the intention to integrate community comments and suggestions.  The Committee envisions the park’s long term master plan to include amenities requested by the community such as a small covered park structure, enhanced playground, covered skateboarding area, public art, pathways, seating, stage/amphitheater, restrooms, an area for special events, and improved landscaping.


Agendas and minutes from the Hal Moe Pool Advisory Committee meetings are available below.

For more information or to submit ideas and suggestions, contact Denise Johns, Project Manager.
