It is impossible to relate how excited we are that the City is implementing a call for qualifications for Architects and Landscape Architects! By this process funds can be allocated to completely restore the cabins and possibly create a writer's conference center where authors can get together to improve their craft in the very spot Tom Wolfe wrote. I was very happy that the City and PSABC approved my site plan ideas as part of the request. The process is to begin in December which is much faster than we all ad envisioned. Thanks to David Nutter and Jack Thomson for initiating this process.
The City has completed the demolition of the unwanted basement using its heavy equipment and is currently adding additional bracing needed to protect the structure until the floor system can be replaced. This site should become a part of our nation's Landmark Designations and may someday attract some of our finest literary talent to our city. If additional log cabins and the pavilion are built the site can multifuntion with the day camps that surround it to give our youth many good experiences. Keeping fingers crossed!!!!
