While the sentiment is nice, it's naive to think that, if this were an augmented PUD, a developer would build a public swimming pool for DPR as an amenity. For anyone who has followed PUDs in recent years, the amenities seem to be getting thinner and thinner. Whereas in the past single apartment building PUDs had community arts/theater space for example, much larger PUDs seem to get approved with much less recently. About a mile from this site, Cathedral Commons is going up, and its principal amenity seems to be a small decorative fountain on the corner of Wisconsin and Idaho. So if a two-block mixed use PUD complex gets by with a "foot fountain," y'all are dreaming if you think this developer would build a public swimming pool. Unless perhaps it's the size of the Cathedral Commons fountain.
