The Pavilion is coming down

An Engineers Structural Recommendation Report by Jack Harrison, P.E. of Structural Design Consulting out of Wimberley, was reviewed by the City of Teague Pavilion Park Committee Monday, Jan. 28.

The committee recommended in their first meeting to have an engineer evaluate the large Pavilion at the 8th Avenue Park to determine if the structure should be demolished or could be renovated.

The engineer’s recommendation is clear the structure is not safe in its current condition.

“We recommend that the pavilion should remain closed to the public and removed in its entirety,” Harrison reported. “Any attempt to properly repair or renovate the structure would require the pavilion be taken down completely to it foundation and rebuilt.”

He also reported the existing structure has outlived its useful life and needs to be removed.
