Clear Lake Aquatic Center

Clear lake, IA | Sports + Recreation

Overview

ISG helped the City of Clear Lake bounce back from previous bond failures for a new aquatic center to reassess community needs and develop plans and designs for a facility with strong public buy-in.


Opportunity

The community of Clear Lake had always relied on their city’s namesake for their water recreation, but due to public demand, the city began investigating the feasibility of a community swimming pool.

Solution

The Clear Lake community communicated its interest in a new swimming pool and aquatic center. After two failed bond issues for a highly priced project, Clear Lake hired ISG to propose a more economical solution. A family aquatic center on City property, formerly used as their public works headquarters, was designed and proposed by ISG. The result was the passage of a third bond issue and the pool was opened in the summer of 2007. Attendance has shown the great need for an alternative to lake activities and the aquatic center has provided another amenity for Clear Lake’s tourist draw.
