Pavilion, gazebo still works in progress

(Continued)

Tonawanda News —

“I want to use it more than we ever have before,” Pilozzi said. “For summer concerts, and other events.”

Pilozzi is also excited about the pavilion, a structure he has wanted in the city since his campaign in 2005. 

The plumbing, mechanical, and electrical, and dry wall work on the inside of the pavilion is now complete, according to LaMonaco. The dry wall is being sanded and the siding will be added next week. 

“We also added some black top work to the project along the way, and a retaining wall, to separate it from the walkway,” LaMonaco said. 

The $1 million dollar project was made possible through funding from the Niagara River Greenway Commission, as well as city coffers. The city is planning on renting the pavilion out for weddings and events to act as a revenue source. But Pilozzi also wants the building to serve an educational purpose, and provide information on ecological models and information on the river’s natural habitats. 

The multi-purpose structure was originally set to be complete in December, but ran into multiple delays along the way.

“It’s really coming along quite well,” Pilozzi said. “But anytime I come up with a tentative schedule I get surprised. Provided there are no glitches, it will be complete soon.”
