Update on dining hall rehabilitation at Steele Indian School Park

[Source: Barbara Stocklin] -- On February 26, 2007, HP Office staff met with representatives from the Engineering, Architectural Services Department, Parks Department, and the contractor and architect on the Dining Hall rehabilitation project to discuss the 85 percent plans received by Swann Architects for the HP bond funded exterior rehabilitation project at Dining Hall, and the process and timing for obtaining hard bids for this scope. The project will complete the exterior restoration of the historic building, but will not complete interior rehabilitation work needed. It was determined at the meeting that the “project team” would have bi-weekly progress meetings and that City Council action to allocate the funding would occur in May or June 2007, prior to the end of the Fiscal Year. This project has $1.683 million of historic preservation bond funding in the first year of the 2006 bond program.
