Beach House Renovation Status

Hi, PL Community.

Pleased to inform you that progress is being made on the beach house renovation project!

In case you missed it last week, Council voted unanimously to enter into an agreement with PK Construction for the refurbishment of the beach house. And earlier today, a line of construction fencing went up around the perimeter of the beach house.

It has been a long journey, punctuated by a couple of rounds of architectural plans, a couple of rounds bidding to find a qualified contractor, etc. A lot of people have been working diligently to get us to this point. Special thanks to Mayor de Nobriga, Councilmember Diamond, Councilmember Hammet, our City Administrator Valerie Caldwell, Bitsy Pitts, Kathleen Lower and Thomas Paz. Thanks also to Matt Pulsts and Tommy Conlon for their input on the design plans.

To be clear, the chief goal of this project is to rehabilitate a building that was erected decades ago and make it safe, compliant with modern building codes and ready to rejoin the City’s lineup of facilities for rental. The roof is in bad shape. The wiring is not good. The budget is tight. And it is expected to take several months to complete the renovation.

But the first couple of signs of progress are evident. And we hope to communicate more signs of progress in the near term.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the beach house renovation. I’ll do my best to get answers. Thanks.
