Affton, City ofAffton, MO
In 2003, The St. Louis County Parks and Recreation Department retained Counsilman Hunsaker to research aquatic recreation options and provide information that will help determine the feasibility of the development of a new aquatic center in the Affton community. The purpose of the Facility Impact Study was to offer a preparatory, comprehensive study analysis focusing on an outdoor aquatic facility for this community.
CHA conducted research and gathered information through discussions and interviews with the St. Louis County Park and Recreation Department Steering Committee, several focus groups with community members, interviews with community stakeholders, site visits, a random sample phone survey, and two town hall meetings at the Affton White-Rodgers Community Center. Three outdoor leisure pool options were developed for review by the Steering Committee.
