After several additional information requests by the City of Carmel and the State of Indiana, the new pool design was approved. Aquatic & Recreation Design released the Woodland Springs Pool Project on January 15, 2018 at the Reprographix.com website for contractors to review and bid. February 15th was the deadline for submission of sealed private* bids. After a thoroughly review of all bids by Aquatic & Recreation Design and Woodland Springs, Inc Board of Directors a contract was awarded. A Letter to Proceed was issued to the contractor awarded the bid. The next step is to have a contract developed and signed upon by both the contractor and the Board of Directors.
*(Private bids are different than public bids which many are familiar. Woodland Springs is not a government agency, thus the reason our bids were classified as "Private" and the reason the bid amount is not disclosed until a contract is executed between the construction firm and Woodland Springs, Inc.)
As a timeline is developed by the contractor, the board will post updates on the website. It is hoped, but not guaranteed that the new pool will be completed by August 1, 2018. There are varying circumstances which will determine the completion date. Weather, of course, is one of the major factors influencing the construction progress or delays.
The Board is most appreciative of the work which the Pool Advisory Committee has done to help define the type of pool which the majority of Woodland Springs homeowners requested. These include an “8 ft deep end” as well as a dedicated lap lane for lap swimming during pool hours. The concrete decking will be enlarged for more seating and lounging areas. The pool Is being built to provide many, many years of enjoyment by all who live In Woodland Springs neighborhood.
The Woodland Springs Board of Directors along with members of PAC (Pool Advisory Committee) are researching pool options for homeowners to use while our community pool is under construction. All further updates will be posted to this website as more information becomes available.
