Representatives with a Denver-based architecture firm tasked with sprucing up a worn out swimming facility on Casper’s south end are gathering public comment prior to drawing up redesign plans.

Architects with Ohlson Lavoie Collaborative began their redesign process of Mike Sedar Pool by holding a public meeting at Casper College on Thursday night.

OLC Architecture senior principal Bob McDonald says the tastes of the typical swimmer have evolved greatly since Mike Sedar Pool first opened to the public in 1964.

“The aquatic user of today is much more diverse in their use of aquatic venues,” McDonald said. “They’re using aquatic (facilities) not just for exercise and learn-to-swim, but as an overall recreation venue.”

McDonald ensures the new Mike Sedar Pool will be significantly different compared to the current facility.

“It’s a complete redo – right now, it’s pretty much a blank slate,” McDonald said. “We’re trying to find out what we can afford to put up there and what’s going to fit the community the best.”

The renovation will cost $1.86 million. The city expects to reopen the facility by May of 2014.

Residents are encouraged to visit the city’s website to comment on the redesign.
