Majority of Residents Want Kendrick Pool Renovated or Rebuilt

Almost 75 percent of Sheridan residents want to see Kendrick Pool renovated or rebuilt.

That's according to figures from a parks survey cited by Public Works Director Lane Thompson.

Thompson said 48 percent of those who responded to the survey said they “strongly agree” with that statement, and 23 percent said they “agree” with the statement.

Thompson said the survey response has people in the parks department re-thinking what to ask for in a planned request for proposals on the pool. He said the original plan was to request proposals to determine the immediate needs of the pool – what's needed to keep the 80-year-old pool going.

But based on the survey, Thompson said the department now wants to expand the scope of work and get a more detailed study on needs for the pool. He said he wants to talk to the mayor and city council about asking for a more in-depth study.

Thompson said the survey indicated Kendrick Pool and the city's pathways system are two of the highest rated facilities in the city that Sheridan residents love and use.

Thompson said the pool was built by Evelyn and Edward Moore, using private funds, and presented as a gift to the city.
