MEDINA – A new band stand is being built at State Street Park in Medina. Students from the Job Corps have done much of the construction so far after the Village of Medina DPW prepared the site and dug holes for the posts.

The interior ceiling will be tongue and groove and there will be asphalt shingles on the roof. Donations are covering the costs of the materials for the project.

The Medina Planning Board is working on a policy for how events will be handled at the site.

Chris Busch, chairman of the Planning Board, said the long-term plans include decorative lights similar to those on West State Street. The covered pavilion is expected to be available for use by the community for concerts, weddings and other special events.

The Orleans Renaissance Group is facilitating and supporting the project.
