    Front entrance improvement project? What was wrong with the entrance? The pathway? The sign-in desk? Who on earth decided this timing? Sounds like a ploy to keep it closed until Memorial Day to save money. This is reminiscent of the closure of The Lake Newport pool for two weeks in the middle of last season.

    Money would be better spent ensuring that the locker rooms are regularly cleaned, the shower heads actually work, the area is re-painted, and the pool equipment is maintained before it breaks.

    First off, Lake Newport was closed for a mechanical failure and not for your ridiculous conspiracy (https://www.restonnow.com/2014/07/18/update-lake-newport-pool-will-reopen-saturday/). Seccondly, North Shore front entrance was horribly designed and provided no reasonable passage to those needing ADA access unless they wanted to go careening down a hill into a wall.
