APS has acknowledged that the Field of Dreams (the proposed location for the Virginia-Highland Pool) is underutilized  and considers it excess property. APS is open to leasing or co-developing the land to allow for “programs and activities to benefit the community”. APS is in the process of finalizing their approach to excess properties, at which time they will be able to act on a proposal to develop a pool. Our goal is generate community engagement to best understand the neighborhood sentiment and ambitions for the pool so we can be in position to deliver a formal proposal as soon as APS is ready.
