Pavilion Update (Focus, Aug 2016)
The Pavilion funding has been used to dry it in and preserve the structure until funding is available for completion. We engaged a new architect to complete the detailed design of the roofing system and are currently out for bids. The initial bids were high due to too many undefined details.
As funds are available, the first priority will be to complete the roof. The bathrooms, storage
The fun part is that it is already provided useful space, as you can see from the Cub Scout gathering pictured below.
“This was the annual Bridging Ceremony for Cub Scout Pack 958. Our pack mainly draws students from North Pointe Elementary School (charted at Clear Lake United Methodist Church). We had about 80–90 scouts and their families attend the event. We were able to use a firepit and cook hotdogs... All were impressed by the new facility and were appreciative to UBC for allowing us to use the pavilion after our original location (under the trees by the baseball field) was under water due to heavy rain. “
The berm grew slightly larger than first anticipated, but as the grass fills in it will be a great play area (as well as gathering place) for concerts and events in the pavilion. We saved tens of thousands of dollars by avoiding transportation fees for disposing of the dirt from the detention pond.
