Here at Sunward (Ann Arbor, Michigan), we are in the process of evaluating the feasibility of installing an in-ground pool. During our site programming, we specifically decided NOT to have a pool, so there is no pre-planned location we can drop the pool into. This brought up several issues that we would love to hear other groups' experiences with. Namely: -How critical is proximity (geographic and visual) as it relates to overall usage? Our fear is that if we place the pool too far on the periphery, nobody will use it. -For those communities with pools, was the pool financed and on-going maintenance handled by a sub-set of the community? How is this working out? How did you handle households which did not want to participate financially in the pool (i.e., could these households, or their successors, use the pool?). -Are there environmental options for the pool material and chemicals? I suspect Michigan is not the leading edge for such things :-) -A general question - for those communities with a pool, would you do anything differently? Thanks, Paul Conahan www.sunward.org
