There are three main issues:
- End of life: the 2011 Stantec assessed the facility and determined that a number of systems were at risk of failure and the facility was at the end of its life. These systems are at risk of increased failure as each day passes.
- Lack of accessibility: Recreation Integration Victoria determined that 20% of Victoria’s residents is excluded from using the current facil ity due to its physical design.
- Can’t meet demand: There is currently more demand for the pool than can easily be accommodated during prime time use periods. The need for indoor swims in Victoria is 22% more than what is being accommodated. The demand will increase as the population does.
