[ARCHIVED] Structural Analysis of Community Pool Underway

City Seal

The City of Key West Building Official Raj Ramsingh is working with the Engineering Department to carefully assess the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center to ensure complete public safety.

In recent months, parts of the facility – especially the entry and changing rooms – have shown signs of deterioration. 

"We're doing a structural analysis to ensure the facility is safe," said City Manager Patti McLauchlin.

The community center and pool were renovated in 2011, and its roof was renovated in 2018.  The facility, located at 300 Catherine Street, was built in the 1950s.

The initial safety assessment should be finished within the next two weeks, says Engineering Director Gary Volenec.  At that point, the City will decide whether to close it until the deterioration is shored up or whether it’s safe to continue public access while addressing the problem areas. MLK Community Center and Pool
