Hampton, VA

In May 2014, Hampton City Council received the final report regarding exploration of various sports tourism venues that might present opportunities to meet a local need and generate economic impact in the community. A competition aquatic facility was identified as one such facility that deserved further, more in-depth analysis.

The city of Hampton retained Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide aquatic facility options that would help the city make an educated decision before moving forward with the construction and operation of a natatorium. The report was a standard business modeling procedure that identified the key competition swimming elements that would need to be included to make an attractive venue for local, regional, state and perhaps an occasional national level swimming competition. The report also identified what those competition swimming elements would cost as well as an estimated area economic impact analysis.
