Memorial Park restroom project begins with demolition

The old restrooms at Memorial Park are no more. A crew from Kirack Construction demolished the old restrooms this morning, Monday, Sept. 25, to prepare the site for a new structure, expected to be completed by this time next month.

According to a statement from the city of Susanville, “The city of Susanville has obtained grant funding through the State of California Community Development Block Grant CDBG CV 2/3 program to replace the bathroom located at Memorial Park near the baseball field grandstands … The new bathroom facility is provided by CXT and will have four individual stalls equipped with a toilet and sink in each stall, one electrical panel/storage room, anti-graffiti paint coating, exterior water bottle filing station, exterior water fountain and a new updated look. It is estimated that this project will be completed in one month. While construction is in progress, there are portable bathrooms placed at Memorial Park for public use.”

According to the staff report from Oct. 19, 2022, “The restroom facility at Memorial Park provides public restroom access to the community park visitors, as well as Lassen Community College Baseball program, Susanville Memorial Skate Crew and various other events that occur throughout the year including the Junior Fishing Derby, the annual Show ‘n’ Shine classic car show, among others.”
