Downtown Gazebo Closed Due to Structural Problems

The gazebo which stands in the center of the city’s historic Plaza de la Constitución and the stage for many small events, has been closed to public access because of structural problems.

During a recent inspection, city staff determined that several of the columns supporting the roof have deteriorated to the point of needing replacement. Until such time that new supports can be manufactured and installed, the gazebo will receive temporary supports that will allow the facility to continue to be used. During the construction phase when permanent repairs will be made, the facility will have to be closed for approximately six weeks. Dates for that phase have not been determined nor have exact costs for the repairs been determined.

The centerpiece of the Plaza, the gazebo hosts many small events, primarily serving as a stage for ceremonies and concerts, most notably the city’s annual summer musical series, Concerts in the Plaza, set to start its 21st season on Memorial Day. At this time it is not clear if the concerts schedule will have to be adjusted.
