The Arlington Heights Park District will host three open houses next week for the public to view concept plans for a proposed $15 million expansion and renovation of the Olympic Indoor Swim Center.

The events, all at Olympic, 660 N. Ridge Ave., are scheduled for: 10 to 11:30 a.m. Sunday; 7:15 to 8:45 p.m. Tuesday; and 10 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. Park district staff members and architects will be available to discuss the concepts being considered, and attendees will be able to provide input.


The project would include a high school-sized gymnasium, indoor walking track, warm water therapy pool, fitness and multipurpose spaces, and renovations to the current building. Costs would be funded with up to $4 million from reserves and through a bond issuance of no more than $12 million. The project could begin next spring and be complete by fall 2019 or early 2020.
