Clean-up This Weekend

Please come help. A lot has been done—you should come and see! A lot still needs to be done. We want our grounds to look as wonderful as our new bath house.

Teens and parents - Don't forget that you can get community service hours by helping with clean-up at the pool!

  • Saturday, April 30, 10am - 2pm,  Jason Parker supervising
  • Sunday, May 1, 2 - 5pm, Stephen Frey supervising


The weather is supposed to be good:  cloudy, with no rain, in the 50’s.

Questions? Contact Dana danacibulski@cox.net or call her (703)628-2235

 

Clean-up Progress

Thanks to ‘Herculean’ efforts by Mike & Ben Dannholz and Nathan Corcoran, the wooded areas have been cleared out, the old front desk has been moved next to the snack shack, the path to tennis courts has been cleaned up as well. A huge thanks to those volunteers that helped last weekend and Wednesday night moving the desk.

 

Clean-up Plans for this Weekend

  • Wooded areas (off parking lot) need to be raked flat (*bring hard rakes, please)
  • Playground needs to be weeded, kudzu vines cut down and dug up, 6x6’ beams need to be removed from the ground
  • Kudzu is starting to show its ugly face! So, these vines along the left fence need to be dug out and cut down
  • Baby pool area needs weeding, trimming

NS-SC Pool Renovation Project

   Winter 2016 -- NS-SC.org -- North Springfield Swim Club (NSSC) Project Renovation Update -- February 2016


After more than 50 years, our community swim club is going through a major renovation. Built in 1957 and one of the first original 5 community pools built in Northern Virginia, NSSC is finally having a face lift. As of January 1, demolition has taken place, dumpsters are in place, and roof trusses delivered! Mid-February, a roof will be placed over the entire bath house—previously it was “open-air” in keeping with the 1950’s style. Completely new, updated bath and changing rooms will be built and all areas will finally meet the ADA, handicapped accessible design requirements, that didn’t even exist when the original bath house was built. The construction is to be completed by opening day for the summer 2016 season.

Roof truss installation and construction as of February 11.
   Engineered roof trusses are being raised.    Roof construction as of February 11!


And we'll transform and renovate the pool bath house into look like this image
in a couple of months.

The pool’s Board of Directors and the Renovation Committee, headed by Robert Sweeney (previous President), Kathy and Mike Dannholz, has been working tirelessly (and on a volunteer basis!) over the past several years, planning, getting funding in place, and preparing the grounds for this historic event. From several area businesses, 2 local North Springfield residents were selected to lead the project. Shamual Choudhury (Easton Drive) of Moore Architects is the lead architect and Steve Bowes (Atlee Place) of Phoenix Home Services, is the lead contractor.

Walk over to the site, at the intersection of Leesville Blvd. and Earlehurst Street, to check out the progress over the next several weeks. Updated photos will be added to the pool website during the spring as well:  ns-sc.org. Yes, neighbors this is really happening!

If you have any questions, contact Dana Cibulski, President, Board of Directors, NSSC <danacibulski@cox.net>
