Zero-entry pools, also known as 'beach-entry' or 'walk-entry' are a type of pool that have a sloping entrance. You enter the pool at zero depth instead of jumping in or climbing in via stairs or ladders, often at a depth of 3 feet or greater.
The funding to make this dream a reality includes several sources. Grants and a bond will be a part of the puzzle. A food and beverage tax will also play a large part.
While no one likes the idea of more taxes, it’s important to put this particular tax in perspective. This is a 1-cent levy on every dollar spent on prepared food or beverage. In other words, ready-to-eat foods served with napkins and/or utensils qualify for the tax. That means when you purchase a $5 value meal at McDonald’s, the F&B tax is 5 cents. If you order a $50 steak at a local eatery, 50 cents will go toward the aquatic center.

The proposed aquatic center will be fully ADA compliant. Through the use of design elements such as zero-entry, and inclusive ramp systems to wet play features, the proposed aquatic center will be an inclusive environment for all to enjoy.
