It was a bit chilly on the Monday after St. Patrick's Day.
"Doesn't feel like swim weather today," Todd McCoy said.
But two months from now Grand Island families can relax in the warm waters of a new neighborhood pool.
McCoy, the parks and recreation director said, "I totally expect Lincoln Pool to be very busy this summer. I think a lot of people are going to come out and check out the new pool and if we get the same kind of weather we did last summer, it'll be hot, great for swimming."
Weather's already been ideal, at least for construction.
McCoy said, "We started in the fall and haven't had two feet of snow that stuck around all winter, so they've been able to make a lot of progress."
Elsewhere, the city of Grand Island plans major wastewater construction this year, but not many spring and summer street projects.
