Project Update - March 2020
Construction for seismic and ADA accessiblity improvements at Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) is now completed. Thanks for everyone's patience while we made these improvements to your regional arts center!
Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) received seismic and ADA improvements. In order to make the best use of these limited funds, feasibility studies were completed in Phase 1 of the Bond to help define the scope of work for the two projects. In Phase 2, design and construction on these improvements will be completed.
Seismic improvements were focused on creating conditions for safe egress in the event of seismic activity. Work included installing bracing in the roof, replacing skylights, and rebuilding one wall of the auditorium.
ADA improvements improved access to the six cottages at MAC, which are used by PP&R for community arts classes and other programs. There are now smooth, newly paved ramps, handrails, and two additional reserved ADA parking spots. These improvements will better serve community members by ensuring access for all.
