RENOVATION UPDATE

In June we learned that no contractor had bid on our project to renovate the 1936/37 “Old Restroom” in Central Park. It wasn’t a big surprise, we knew that we are in the midst of a building boom and our project was pegged to cost less than $45,000. The possible good news, however, is that City Staff believe the way has been cleared to bypass the bidding process and negotiate directly with a qualified contractor, perhaps also dividing the project into separate and “easily doable” parts. The saga that began in 2012 when the concept of gaining a conveniently nearby storage facility occurred to us continues.
