After reading that the City of Baytown was going to build a new pavilion Park, I thought awesome.
Though I no longer live in Baytown, I had a couple of great birthday parties at that pavilion as a child.
A 3,400 square foot open concept building, with a small kitchen, and an outdoor grill area sounds great.
The more I read, the more in disbelief I was.
The new pavilion and a new parking area for $750,000. No, that money is just for the plans, no site work or construction.
I know people that have a really nice home this size, with five bedrooms, living area, kitchen, three bathrooms, three-car garage and a pool that cost less than that for plans, construction and landscaping.
I’m all for a new pavilion, but something just doesn’t add up here. How on earth can plans alone for this simple structure and parking area cost $750,000?
