Daytona City Commission Approves Plans For $1M Bandshell Renovation

By on November 16, 2017 in WNDB News

Daytona Beach, FL – In Wednesday night’s meeting, the Daytona Beach City Commission unanimously voted to spend $1 million to renovate the Bandshell.

$998,891.77 will go towards to interior and exterior renovation of the Historic Bandshell. The funding will be pulled from the Main Street Redevelopment Fund ($180,321), the Grant Projects Fund ($468,570.77), and the Capital Projects Fund ($350,000). According to the City, the last time the interior was renovated was over 50 years ago.

The Bandshell’s electrical, plumbing, Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility requirements, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) are currently not up to code. The renovations would target these areas as well as architectural changes, painting, and new flooring.

The City recognizes that the $1 million cost of the project is due to the materials needed to bring the structure up-to-code. The renovation requires corrosion resistant stainless steel and external fixtures due to the ocean environment as well as a 10-year warranty on supplies for potential rusting or other damages. General Mechanical Corporation will complete the renovations, as they were the lowest responsible bidder.
