Financial reality unkind to Pelham park plan
Last fall, Brian Johnson, director of the Parks and Recreation Department, said his department was looking to use money raised by the soccer and lacrosse programs to build the new concession stand.
With several of the bids for the project in, however, Johnson said it looks to be more costly than first estimated.
If the numbers had come in closer to the estimates, Johnson said construction on the concession stand could have begun this spring.
As it stands now, the parks department will have to look at how it wants to proceed.
“We are waiting for one more bid, but we are somewhat discouraged,” said Johnson. “We will look at what we really need there and downsize the project.”
