Safety and access during construction

We have no construction planned for the 2023 season. Construction of the emergency supplies building attached to the east side of the pool house is expected to begin and be completed during the winter 2022-2023. Installation of play areas is planned to be completed before family swim begins Memorial Day weekend. If it must be done during swim season, it will be scheduled outside of the Sea Lions Swim Team season, and we would we still have the locker rooms and snack bar available.

The following will be apply for construction during any swim season:

  • We will enclose construction activity inside a secure, temporary, chain link fence to separate pool access and pool users completely from the construction area.
  • If a pedestrian corridor is needed to the pool area, it will be 5 feet wide, and a safe distance away from the building work, and will be monitored by the construction crew for any construction debris.
  • We will take all normal precautionary measures to confine construction impacts to the construction side of the fence. If we find construction activity is impacting the area beyond the isolating fence, we will adjust construction activity or modify the fence to eliminate the impact.
  • We will manage the safety of pool users during construction with the same effort that we currently exert every day, both in and around the pool.
  • If we find that construction impacts are occurring on the public side of the fence, it may be necessary to exclude pool visitors for a short time while we adjust operations to correct the problem.
  • We will plan construction activity to minimize noise impacts during the early and late part of each shift, in general consideration of neighbors.

Sleepy Hollow Pool is a community pool operated by volunteers, overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors, as it has been for over 50 years. All who use the facility share the responsibility to keep it safe and to point out and act to correct unsafe conditions or activity. Everyone is responsible for safety.
