Browne's Addition Landmark to Undergo Renovation | Community Spirit
A Browne's Addition landmark will undergo a much needed renovation.
In a meeting on Wednesday, April 3rd, the Land Committee of the Spokane Park Board accepted a motion to enter into a contract with a low bidder for renovation of the Coeur d'Alene Pavilion in Coeur d'Alene Park. The pavilion is no longer structurally sound mostly due to deterioration of the wood support posts from water damage. The structure is slanting from the wood posts compressing under the weight of the roof. In addition, the outer railing no longer meets building codes and is also deteriorating.
The current pavilion is a replica of what was originally in the park and was built in the late 1980s. The current renovation plans look to replace all of the now wood components to steel and concrete. They will keep the copper dome and the concrete base. The committee was in favor of this plan because it would reduce the probability and cost of any future repairs or renovations.
