Bathhouse and Administration Building Design
The 2012 Boulder Reservoir Master Plan indicated the need for renewal and renovation of several key facilities that support visitor use at the reservoir. Additionally, recent facility assessments of the Reservoir Bathhouse and Administration Building show that while some system deficiencies can be addressed through maintenance or minor repairs, others have reached or surpassed their expected life cycle and require significant repair, rehabilitation or replacement. Maintenance issues are affecting the operation of the facility and diminish the opportunities for quality visitor experiences at the reservoir.
This means we are in the early planning stages to envision a new bathhouse and administration building. The first meeting on Sept. 22 is an opportunity for the community to review the options for renewal of the bathhouse to meet several key program functions including restrooms, concessions, visitor areas and administrative functions. The purpose of the meeting is for community feedback on schematic alternatives to assist in the development of a recommended plan to address building functionality given current uses, proposed uses and demand.
