KGRC Renovation Planning

The KGRC Board of Directors established a special committee to focus on planning necessary renovations for our pool and facilities. Our pool was built in 1957 and has been well maintained ever since. However, the pool is beyond its estimated duration of use, 50 years, and is in need of major renovations. We are in the early stages of planning and will provide additional information on this page throughout the planning process.

Please contact with any questions or if you would like to get involved in the planning process.

Current Information Regarding the Renovation Planning

Our pool was built in 1957 and now at 66 years old is beyond its estimated 50-year useful life. The KGRC Board has maintained the pool well over the years including a complete replacement of the pool deck in 1987, renovation of the bath house in 2011, and most recently a new white coat and coping stones in 2020. However, the fundamental pool and plumbing system are in need of replacement and many aspects of our facilities are no longer aligned with updated safety and building code requirements, such as the dimension of the dive well and accessibility requirements.

Given KGRC facilities’ age and current state, the Board is growing increasingly concerned that, with the passage of time, we run the risk of jeopardizing a summer season with the need for a major repair. Since we are a membership organization and our club’s financial viability relies on annual dues, the pool facilities’ failure could result in severe financial issues for the club.

The KGRC Board of Directors established the Renovation Planning Committee with the objective to gather information, identify needs and priorities, develop a comprehensive plan, and oversee the execution of a renovation that improves KGRC’s safety, facilities, and amenities, ensuring it serves current and future members and the McLean community.

A member survey was conducted in 2023 to gather input from current members on the use of the pool and potential features of the renovation.

No, the renovation will occur during the off season.

We are working toward a schedule of renovations occurring during the offseason from September 2025 through May 2026.

There is much work to be done to determine the details of the renovation including how it will be funded. The Renovation Planning Committee is exploring financing options and developed a detailed plan both to fund the renovation and have a sustainable budget for the future of KGRC.

It is likely that the renovation will be funded with a combination of existing funds, a special assessment on current members, an increase in the initiation fee for future members, and an increase in annual dues.

Details are not yet known, but it is likely that a special assessment on current members will be necessary to raise funds for initial capital for the financing of the renovation.

Initial cost estimates for the project are approximately $2.5M. We are exploring financing options and are likely to require a special assessment on current members for initial capital funding of 20% – 30% of the total project cost.
