A virtual public meeting will be held for the Dietz Stadium and Andretta Pool improvements project on Tuesday, January 19 at noon. The project involves a multi-phased, comprehensive restoration of the sports complex, parking lot and surrounding drive. Upgrades are intended to make the facility a regional sports attraction and economic benefit.

At the public meeting, city staff, and engineering consultants from CPL will present the project’s master plan for public comment. The master plan includes improvements to the scoreboard, bleachers, water fountains, fencing and gates, sound and wi-fi systems, lighting, bike racks, locker rooms, bathrooms, food vending, signage, parking and more.

With substantial funding from a Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) state grant  construction began at the Andretta Pool in spring 2020. A new roof and masonry repairs at the pool house have been completed, as well as pool lining repairs and installation of a new pump and filter for the pool and a new splash pad. The splash pad is expected to be installed by June 2021.
