Retrofit at Discovery Museum to cost $335,000

- Advertisement -

Tuesday night at the regular meeting of Council, Managing Director of Community Services, John Severino made a report to Council recommending that they grant up to $107,000 to Heritage North Bay for a significant window, frame, and exterior wall rehabilitation at the Discovery North Bay Museum. The recommendation was accepted and later passed.

In 2004, it was recommended by architects that the windows be replaced, but due to budgetary issues, only repairs were made. The windows have now reached their end of service life, according to the report.

The retrofit and rehabilitation project will cost over $335,000. Heritage North Bay has secured federal and provincial grants from Trillium 150 in the amount of $151,500 and FedNor 150 for $66,000. The museum is contributing $33,550.

The work must be completed as the former CP Station where the museum is housed has an easement from the Ontario Heritage Trust protecting its exterior appearance.
