DPW Renovates City Recreation FacilitiesThe Department of Public Works(DPW) is making improvements to several neighborhood recreation centers and other City facilities. Work has started on the Greenmount Recreation Center roof. It will be replaced with new insulated roofing and an improved drainage system. Weather permitting, this $39,000 project will be completed by the end of September.
Soon work will begin to replace the Upton Multipurpose Center roof at a cost of $123,600. Located at 1901 Pennsylvania Avenue, the center is currently occupied by the YWCA. In recent months, heat pump and water system upgrades were made to another portion of the center to improve the air conditioning and heating system. Once the roof work is complete, the Department of Recreation and Parks plans to relocate its city-wide boxing program from the Herring Run Recreation Center to Upton.
In addition to recreation centers, work is beginning on several library facilities. Bids were submitted this week for demolition work in preparation for the new southeast Baltimore library. In October, work will be completed on the heating and air conditioning replacement at the Edmondson library and—currently in the design phase—the Roland Park library will be renovated and expanded.
Earlier this year, DPW replaced the roof of the Lafayette Square Community Center. Plans are now underway for a study to restore the former Cherry Hill Multipurpose Center building to new use. The building, owned by the City Health Department, was severely damaged by fire several years ago.
