    b. Roundhouse Project:

    (1) The President reported that Flowers, Inc. had inspected the Shotgun Roundhouse and provided the following estimates:

  • Demolish the present structure and rebuild a replica Roundhouse building: $250,000.

  • Renovate the present building and restore the building to its original design: $200,000.

    (2) The President remarked that the company providing the estimate was primarily in the demolition business and he would seek another estimate. The President also noted that the Roundhouse Committee established November 2005 as the date for groundbreaking to restore or rebuild the Roundhouse.

    (3) The Board voted unanimously to pursue the Roundhouse project as a renovation project rather than a demolition then rebuild project because renovation:

  • will be substantially less costly,

  • has a shorter and simpler Army approval process, and
