|Meeting set on pavilion renovation in Ferriday|
A pre-construction meeting on the restoration of the Festival Pavilion in Ferriday is slated for Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at town hall, according to Mayor Glen McGlothin.
Town officials will meet with architects from The Architectural Studio of Baton Rouge to discuss the project, which is funded by an $800,000 state capital outlay grant.
Petron Company of Alexandria will perform the rehab work on the structure, McGlothin said.
"This building will be utilized as a music hall and for other functions," he said. "It will include a full commercial kitchen and people will be able to rent the facility for events."
The building sits on 3.1 acres in downtown Ferriday, he said. Two other buildings are also located on the property.
"One building was the old Mack and Anders warehouse and the other was a commissary for the railroad," according to the mayor.
McGlothin said the property will also be used for festivals and as fairgrounds.
"That space is big enough to bring the carnival and fair back to the parish," McGlothin said.
McGlothin said the buildings on the property will be renamed once the work is complete.
Meanwhile, McGlothin said work is also slated on the Concordia Hotel downtown.
