State makes offer to acquire portion of land for Purple Line

The State of Maryland has made an offer to the Association to buy a small portion of land adjacent to the Capitol Crescent Trail and to obtain a temporary easement to use pool property next to the trail access point on Grubb Road during the construction of the Purple Line.

The formal offer and negotiations to get to this point will be discussed at the Annual Meeting on Labor Day, Monday, September 5 at 4:00p.m.

Full Members will have an opportunity to vote to sell the property in September.

Documents related to the proposed sale of a portion of Rock Creek Pool property for the Purple Line can be found here.

Modernization Results

The results are in. Pool President Gretchen Ekstrom explains the result in this letter to members. In brief:

Using the results of the survey, the Board has voted to proceed with expanding the main pool, renovate the baby pool, construct a food prep area, and construct the pavilion next to the pump house. Surveys were sent by email to 400 Full Members and 225 Summer Swimmers. Responses were received from 218 Full Members and 124 Summer Swimmers.

We are moving forward with financing and will present that plan at the Annual Member Meeting on Sept. 5 at 4pm.
