Project Update - May 2019
Construction for seismic improvements at Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) is now completed. A future phase of Bond improvements to provide ADA access to the cottages at MAC is planned for mid-2019.
Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) will receive seismic and ADA improvements. In order to make the best use of these limited funds, feasibility studies were completed in Phase 1 of the Bond to help define the scope of work for the two projects. In Phase 2, design and construction on these improvements will be completed.
Seismic improvements were focused on creating conditions for safe egress in the event of seismic activity. Work included installing bracing in the roof, replacing skylights, and rebuilding one wall of the auditorium.
ADA improvements will improve access to the cottages at MAC, which are used by PP&R for community arts classes and other programs.
