|Birch Grove Community Center Project Background|
History: The 1% tax steering committee finished in the spring of 2009 with a list of possible projects and estimated funding potential...The Birch Grove Center in Tofte was on that list. Although LHB had designed a complete recreation project with a cost of 1.5 million, the steering committee had reduced the possible amount to $500,000. We have revised the project to meet that lesser amount and have found funding for a significant portion of the project.
The project consists of rebuilding the tennis court, outdoor basketball court, and hockey rink with a warming house and outdoor vault toilet. It also includes paving the entrance, exit and the parking lot to the community center. The only community center building updates are new sidewalks and an upgrade to the 45 year old kitchen (including new flooring, two new commercial ovens, ice maker, and new dishwasher).
Total Projected Costs: Under $500,000
