Strickland did not make a specific financial request, but instead presented an overview of the role the pool at Crozet Park plays in western Albemarle County. He reminded the Board that the County assisted with the construction of the Crozet pool in 1996, and continues to provide financial assistance for some families thanks to a partnership with the Countyâ€™s Department of Social Services. Strickland also suggested residents of western Albemarle County would benefit from an indoor aquatic facility.
Why no specific request?
Rooker told Strickland that he felt the Star Swimming proposal was specific, and included a plan that demonstrated how the facilityâ€™s operating costs could be maintained without ongoing County support. Strickland said that Crozet Pool would not be seeking operating costs from the County.
