Corrigan along with  Parks & Recreation Services Manager Pat Thomas, Parks Board Members Mickey DePalo,  Barry Gussow, and Garen V. Yegparian and City Councilwoman Emily Gabal Luddy, were present for the meeting. The half dozen residents who showed up were informed about what to expect during construction and given the facts about the new aquatic center that will be built.

The new aquatic center will have a new 50 meter pool to replace the old pool, a new bathhouse, activity pool,  mechanical building,  concessions stands, shade structures ,additional parking, amd plenty of site improvements.

He also promised that the construction will not take place before 7 a.m. on weekdays, and there will be no construction parking of workers or equipment on Rosemary Ln. or California St.  Work on the center should hopefully begin by the end of the month and be completed in April of 2013.

Grand Opening for the new pool and aquatic center is being planed for Memorial Day 2013.

When Corrigan finished his presentation The LA Kings had just scored their 4th goal, en-route to the Stanley Cup.
