    Each of the options seems pretty good. I was envisioning something much larger, that would remove the soccer field. Option 2 is particularly good because it saves the three tennis courts.

    • ah

      I like option 3 a bit more because it’s closer to a full size soccer field.

  • ah

    And guess what? All the neighbors complain about all the options other than letting it continue to rot as a horrible soccer field without real amenities.

  • tj

    Looks promising. The pool should be bigger. If they can’t fit a 50 meter pool in the footprint, the 25 meter pool should be made wider to allow least 8 or 10 lanes. Six lanes is too few.
