Salem board gives OK to start raising funds for $450k pavilion
Earlier this week, selectmen saw plans for the structure, which will include a roofed picnic area, restrooms, storage and a concession stand.
Those efforts will likely include giving naming rights for the pavilion to any entity willing to pony up a quarter of the cost of the project, according to Chris Dillon, parks and recreation director.The new structure will replace a 900-square-foot building from the 1970s.
The first phase was the addition of a skate park and additional gravel parking; the second phase was the addition of some new playground equipment and the extension of the beach at Hedgehog Pond, according to Dillon.
“Cedar is not low-maintenance,” he said. “I want something that doesn’t have to be painted every three years.”
Dillon said the timeline for the project depends on the fundraising, but he said he would like to see construction take place some time next year.
