The Lincoln County Board of Supervisors may have another option to consider when making a final decision of the Lincoln County Fairgrounds Grandstand replacement.
During the October Lincoln County Public Property meeting, Mudrovich Architects presented the committee with a very informative session concerning the berm construction of the grandstand at Marathon Park and why it was built more than a decade ago.
Advantages of a berm construction include:
1) no need to insulate if enclosed
2) no pouring or forming concrete
3) good basis for a multi-phase project.
The $1.2 million project at Marathon Park 10-years ago included the cost of demolition of old grandstand. The bathrooms and stage were an additional cost. A request has been made to have Mudrovich Architects make the full presentation to the County Board meeting October 15th for a similar structure at the Lincoln County fairgrounds.
