The Dacula gazebo project could soon be expanded to include sidewalks and amphitheater seating.
At the Feb. 23 Dacula City Council work session, Dacula public works supervisor Mike Moon proposed expanding the project at a cost of $5,500.
Moon’s proposal includes running a 5-foot sidewalk from Second Avenue to the gazebo and another sidewalk from Wilson Street to the gazebo. The plan also includes tiered amphitheater seating on the Second Avenue side of the gazebo.
The amphitheater seating would consists of three tiers of block seating roughly 17 inches tall. Moon estimates the seating could accommodate as many as 100 people and could be finished before Memorial Day.
“I think it’s something we can be proud of,” Moon said. “I think it will look good.”
Much of the work would be done by city crews, but an outside company would be hired to complete part of the project.
Councilman Hubert Wells walked the gazebo site with Moon and believes the project is worthwhile.
“His vision is really good,” Wells said. “If you do it the way he’s talking about, it’s going to be absolutely gorgeous and for actually very little money.”
The . The $17,000 project includes an octagon-shaped gazebo on a 20x20 concrete slab. The gazebo will have an eight-sided cupola with tempered glass and will be constructed of cedar with cedar shake shingles on the roof. City officials also plan to run water and electricity to the structure.
The project is being funded entirely through SPLOST.
Council will decide whether to expand the project to include sidewalks and amphitheater seating at the March 1 Dacula City Council meeting.
