Conceptual plans available for proposed Druid Hills facilities

CROSSVILLE — The proposed new facilities to replace this 40-year-old complex will include a check-in booth, covered pavilion, men’s and women’s locker rooms, storage space, a covered sitting area and a snack bar. The snack bar will serve soft drinks, snacks, hot dogs and deli sandwiches. There will also be an open area next to the covered seating area for outdoor grilling and sun bathing.

Because this will become such an attractive area, it has been suggested that we may want to hold special late afternoon and/or early evening events there. This raises the question of whether or not we will serve liquor at these special events. We have asked our insurance company and lawyer to determine the Club’s increased responsibilities involved in doing this. No decision will be made until we have their input.

As of July 31 there was about $317,000 in the Amenity Reserve Fund which can only be used for amenity projects. Wyndham has given us $147,000 of this balance via past donations to our Amenity Reserve Fund. The budgeted cost for the new pool buildings is $300,000. Therefore, only $153,000 of the project will actually be funded by our Club. This is less than the Club’s cost for the new facilities at our Dorchester pool complex. Also, it was Upland Design’s recommendation that replacing the facilities was the most cost effective solution. Once the plans are complete and put out to bid we will determine the final scope of the project.

While approximately 71 percent of the visitors to the Druid Hills pool are resort guests, member and member guest activity at this pool exceeds the same type of activity at the Dorchester pool.
