New Recreation Center Discussed at Work Session

By Stephen E. Lipken



Russell A. Davidson, FAIA, President, Kaeyer, Garment + Davidson Architects, PC (KG+D), Mount Kisco, appeared at a Harrison Board of Trustees Special Work Session on Thursday, March 10, 2022, to discuss plans for construction of the new Recreation Center.


Davidson noted that testing will begin by drilling a well to find a Ground Source for Heat Pump for their Geothermal Heating System, since Con Edison declared a moratorium on natural gas shipments.


“Woodard and Curran will analyze storm drainage design and percolation,” Davidson continued.


“There will also be a Hydrant Flow Test to see if the building needs a Fire Pump.”   This will result in a totally green structure, using solar power, Geothermal Heating and Cooling.


Mr. Davidson added that the Recreation Center will feature bleachers, fitness room and multi-purpose recreation rooms.  “One side of the Rec Center can be opened without opening the other. We will provide 11 parking spaces underneath the building.


“There will be controlled rooftop space, overlooking the Terrace, Walking Track and Double Basketball Court.  Entrance will be away from residential areas with drop off lanes on Calvert Street.”


Regarding Harrison Meadows Country Club (HMCC), Supervisor Richard Dionisio requested approval for a quote from Gregory Sahagian & Son Awning Company, Inc. for $12,627; Indigo Golf Partners for $28,471.51 for Point of Sale (POS) system; $11,980.21 from National Business Furniture for office furniture and $17,902 from Direct Machinery Acquisition LLC for a washer and dryer.   


Town Attorney Frank Allegretti said that bids will be advertised for construction work to the bar area and locker rooms, plus exterior painting. The Board did approve $4,280.81 from Morano Group Landscapes for landscaping services to the front part of HMCC.
