SplashForward posts on PNA and PSM Facebook pages: Build a regional aquatics facility in Bellevue! We are building our community base and raising awareness, having met with every Bellevue City Council Member (even the newly elected). They have been very receptive to this great need for a new aquatics facility, seeing our vision for how the greater Bellevue community would benefit. We are also working with the Bellevue School District to help facilitate the relationship between them and the city. We are engaging with the local high school aquatics families and swimmers to identify key spokespeople who will help us voice the unmet need to the School District Board and City Council. And we recently met with King County and all the Parks and Rec Directors from Bellevue / Redmond / Kirkland. We need each other to find success in building a regional aquatics facility… which SplashForward thinks should be in Bellevue!
