UPDATE: The Carrollton Lakeshore Pool and Aquatics Center will soon see a renovation. We spoke with Carrollton Parks & Recreation director Peter Maierhofer who gave us details on the upcoming renovation. There is a meeting slated for February 25th to determine whether a prison inmate work crew will be used or a general contractor. Using the prison inmate work crew for renovations would result in savings of $400,000-$500,000. However, there is a drawback in using a prison inmate work crew which is that the project would take about two years to complete. The renovations will include locker rooms that would connect the pool and center with the fitness center. The renovation will definitely be useful when swim meets take place in the future. Return for more details. Update by Jimmy Beck

According to public construction records we obtained online, Lakeshore Recreation Center on Lumpkin Drive is undergoing some improvements and a small renovation. The records indicate that a new handicap ramp will be built, new carpet will be laid, and a new floor is being added. The restrooms are also receiving a makeover. We have a message into the contractor about other possible work being done at this location. We will have more details as they become available.
