Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Gold Trail Grange Hall has been used as a meeting place by community groups in the Coloma Valley since 1926. Due to a lack of insulation and a metal roof the hall is too hot in the summer to use, and is unavailable for three months out of the year. Sealing the ceiling crawl space in the hall and insulating the ceiling has been identified as the number one priority to making that hall available year round. Funds would be used for materials and labor to seal and insulate the main meeting hall.

 

Numerous organizations in the Coloma Valley use the Grange Hall for meetings, events, and youth activities. The Grange hosts monthly community potlucks and educational activities. The hall is also available to the public for private events, weddings, and memorials. By improving the environmental conditions inside the hall during the hottest summer months, the hall will be available for use year round.

 

See Attachment for a detailed description of past repairs, budgets, and projects utilizing requested funds. 

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose not to approve the funding request, and no funding would be provided in support of these efforts.
