MILTON, GA., June 1, 2011 - The recently renovated Bethwell Community House, located at 2695 Hopewell Road (click here for directions) will be unveiled to the public at a ribbon cutting June 7 at 11 a.m.
The 1,300-square-foot community house, which now also features a 500-square-foot porch, will be soon available for rent for parties, reunions and private functions, said Cyndee Bonacci, Parks and Recreation Director. It also houses Milton's Camp Bethwell, which starts June 6.
"This is the first big renovation project for our department," said Bonacci. "We're all very excited to bring the community this resource - on time and on budget."
Work began on renovating the Bethwell Community House in January when the city contracted with Engineering Inspection Systems and MPZ Architects for project plans. The 40-day physical renovation began in April, with InterCiti Development (ICD) finishing work the last week of May.
In addition to the general renovation and porch, Bethwell now boasts a playground, parking, central heating and air conditioning, new restrooms, a new kitchen and new floors. It is also fully ADA accessible. Total cost for the project was $140,000 - which included all plans and construction.
"ICD donated items and upgrades to the job at no cost to make sure we had the best for our residents," said Bonacci. "We couldn't have asked for better people or work from everyone involved."This ribbon cutting marks a new beginning for the Bethwell Community House, which was built in the early 1950's and given to Fulton County for community use. It had been closed in the early 2000's and was obtained by the City of Milton in 2006 as part of the transition from Fulton County.
