Midway through the Compo Beach pavilion roof removal project, here’s what’s happening:
The view is certainly different — a lot lighter. But where will the seagulls perch?
Meanwhile, the picnic tables had to go somewhere. They’re outside the pavilion, on the cannon side.
At midday today, they got a bit of use.
According to initial reports from Westport Parks and Recreation, the Compo Beach pavilion roof is being removed and replaced.
Like Republican promises about Obamacare however, that might not be exactly what’s happening — at least, right now.
In fact, this week the roof is only being removed.
For a while now, Parks and Recreation director Jen Fava has been on the Board of Finance July 5 agenda, to ask for funds for removing and replacing that roof.
However, when a consultant reported that the roof was structurally unsound, Parks and Rec decided to remove it ASAP.
That project began yesterday.
Fava will still go before the moneymen next month. If approved, a new roof will be installed before next summer.
But for the rest of this season, the pavilion will be open to the sky. Unless, Fava says, another type of roof solution is found.
The rest of the structure — brick walls and cement floor — is not being worked on at all.
The roof removal is expected to be completed before the July 4th weekend crush.
