The Koontz Lake Regional Sewer District (KLRSD) was in need of a space to hold meetings and other events. Through collaboration with the local Lion’s Club, the two entities came to Jones Petrie Rafinski (JPR) to design a multi-purpose building that could be used for both KLRSD and Lions Club meetings and events. The project was under a modest budget due to limited funding available from USDA. JPR worked to develop a solution that would meet both clients needs and establish a presence for the District.
The building program called for both indoor and covered outdoor gathering spaces that could be utilized by either client. The indoor space is served by a kitchenette and the outdoor space provides a secured storage space. In addition, restrooms and a secured office were included in the design.
The proposed building was located on the site of the existing Lions Club building, which was in poor condition. The new wood-framed design utilized cost effective building materials while still providing the building with a unique identity. Secured entrances and lighting add an element of safety to the building and property.
