City of Bellevue Public Works Director Jeff Roberts has issued the following statement with regards to the removal of the diving boards from the Bellevue Public Swimming Pools:
“During the surveying of the swimming pools for future modifications it was discovered that the dive envelope for the diving boards does not meet current standards. As a result of this self discovery, and under advisement from the city's attorneys, it was deemed necessary to remove the diving boards.”
Mr. Roberts and the Public Works Department are preparing a special presentation on the future improvements of the pools which will be presented to the City Council Members at the June 13, 2016 Council meeting at Bellevue City Hall.
