Bronson moves forward with rec center

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

There was a bit of debate Monday night among town council members about how things should be situated at the Bronson Sports Complex, but one thing’s for sure: There will be a recreation facility.
Council members unanimously approved purchasing a 150-foot-by-150-foot steel building kit for about $146,000, though it may sit for a while until officials decide where it will be placed and until construction on the 22,500 square foot concrete pad it will, ultimately, sit upon is finished.
Town Recreation Director Curtis Stacey suggested erecting the building on field No. 5, near a concessions building and bathrooms, though, he added, that particular location might have to be built up because it’s prone to flooding. The council agreed that might be a good spot, but a few said they wanted to consult a study done of the complex a few years ago where several plans for future construction were looked at.
Stacey said estimates he was given put the price of the foundation at about $10 to $12 per square foot, an additional cost to the project of between $225,000 and $270,000.
