Analysis

 

This resolution approves a grant in the amount of $11,600 from the Metro Historical Commission Foundation to the Metro Historical Commission for an assessment of the historic concrete structures in Centennial Park. The Metro Historical Commission has already received a federal passthrough grant in the amount of $17,400 from the Tennessee Historical Commission for this project. The grant from the Metro Historical Commission Foundation will cover the required 40% local match for the passthrough grant. The project includes assessment, materials analysis, developing a priority list, and recommendations for two historic concrete bridges and two historic concrete follies. It also includes a conditions assessment and priority list for repair recommendations for the Parthenon.
