MEMBERS: We will be providing weekly on the status of the Multi-Purpose Building (MPB) project.
The officers, chairmen, and member of the Board of Governors met last night to discuss several items, including the status of the new multi-purpose building (formerly called the “Cook Shack”). As many of you know, demolition of the former Cook Shack is complete and poles have been set for the new construction. The demolition required a demolition permit (which was acquired before the demolition).
Requirements for the new construction include an architectural drawing, a building permit, an electrical permit, a plumbing permit, and an erosion permit. When the contract with the builder was signed, it was the building committee’s understand the builder would secure the proper permits. Upon further review, it was discovered the building proposal placed the responsibility for securing the necessary permits on Anchor Boat Club. The building committee is now in the process of securing the necessary permits. The building contractor is working with the chief planner from the city, along with a few other influential individuals to streamline the permit approval process.
The poles that have been placed in the ground have to be removed so footings can be dug and concrete laid. The net result will be an additional $1400 (however we have already appreciated roughly a $2000 savings on the work that has been done). Labor to remove and reinstall the poles will be absorbed by the contractor.
Once the necessary permits have been obtained and the city signs off on the new footings, construction will resume.
The building committee will continue to provide weekly updates every week. If you have questions in the interim, please contact Tim or Randy.
