An anonymous donor agreed to fund a series of facilitated meetings with the pool user community. The Anchorage Park Foundation Board voted to meet that donor challenge
halfway with unused Challenge Grant funding. The facilitator played a major role in bringing the different parties to the table to discuss the future of municipal pools, resulting in a clearer understanding of each others’ needs.
Participants agreed to work together to establish an efficient and effective aquatic operation and to identify substantial and sustainable funding streams to deliver those services.
