Convention Center to see four-week completion delay
Seaside Signal
The Seaside Civic and
Convention Center expan-
sion and renovation project
will be delayed one month,
executive director Russ Van-
denberg told city councilors
on Monday, June 24.
“We have decided to
extend the project 30 addi-
tional days,” Vandenberg
said of the $15 million proj-
ect, which began last spring.
Reasons for the delay, he
said, come from the need to
build a second temporary set
of stairs from the main fl oor
to the second fl oor.
Completion is now
expected for Aug. 31.
“It’s a big structure right
in the middle and it’s creat-
ing an issue for construction
to get equipment from out
that lobby,” Vandenberg said.

lack of equipment due to the
state’s building boom.
An elevator on the west
side of the building sched-
uled for complete renova-
tion will also be delayed
until July 30.

at the convention center

nice thing we were able

of normalcy connected to
our building. We’re getting

The project, at $15 mil-
lion, will have an expected
contingency balance of
$171,000. Some of that may
be used to change the ceiling
in the main lobby to match
the ceilings in the rest of the
“We’re going to move
forward and have a discus-
sion on that at a later date,”
Vandenberg said.
A public reopening of the
building is scheduled for
Sept. 5, from 4 to 6 p.m.
