EUGENE, Ore. -- Echo Hollow Pool will soon be getting some much-needed upgrades, but to make those happen, the city of Eugene needs community members to chime in.

Now that the pool has passed its 50th birthday, city staff are looking to give it a facelift.

They have created an online survey to allow community members and pool users to give their input on what they would like to see included in the final designs.

These renovations are made possible by a $39 million bond measure that was passed in 2018.

City Aquatics Director Rich Fay said they need community input to make sure those who use the pool will be happy with the final product.

"People have different needs they'd like to see and we'd like to hear what those look like in terms of programming, and in terms of expansion and renovation of the pool," Fay said. "We're hoping we can expand to have more recreational elements and have more lap swimming and water fitness and water polo."

Improvements could include a new recreational pool, upgrades to the two existing pools and locker rooms and improved energy efficiency.

The city will be holding another meeting about the design plans sometime in late April.
