    Potential World-Class Aquatics Facility in Houston

    Houston is the fourth largest city in the nation. Yet it lacks a world-class aquatics facility. I'm encouraging the USMS and swimming communities, especially those in the Houston area and Texas, to view this link, like the FB page, and fill out the survey: https://houstonaquaticcenter.org/

    Survey link is: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1F...rDQLg/viewform

    Survey results will help show that there's demand to have this built. City and county officials, the Houston Sports Authority, and potential stake holders need to hear our voice.

    Re: Potential World-Class Aquatics Facility in Houston

    which city? houston proper? pasadena? katy? spring? cypress? woodlands? near NRG or UofH?
    inside 610 or inside 8?
    near which airport?
    in which county?
    where in the 200+ square miles of the houston proper area?
    owned and operated by who?

    and btw, while the woodlands may not be "world class" that 24million dollar facility is pretty darn nice
    and it has been copied at least 2 other places in rockwall isd and lewisville isd (but neither have the inlaid wood ceiling!)

    This is in the very earliest stages of development. Right now the possibilities being looked at are: inside Houston city limits, outside 610, inside Beltway 8, closer to Hobby Airport, Harris County, possibly near NRG or US 90, or SH288, ownership/operation is undetermined but City of Houston playing a major role.

    Yes, the Conroe ISD Natatorium (Woodlands) is very nice but think of a facility more like IUPUI with two 50 meter pools and capable of hosting national and international competitions.

    We are hoping to have 1,000 or more surveys to show the city, county, and other stake holders that there is interest in building such a facility.
