A new coating on the Casey Community Center roof will turn its color from green to beige.
The Goose Creek Architectural Review Board voted unanimously for the light brown hue at its regularly scheduled Sept. 16 meeting at city hall.
The three options for roof colors were white, off-white and beige. Goose Creek Planning Director Sarah Hanson recommended beige during her presentation.
She also brought some of the ARB members up to speed on the current status of the building that is used for gymnastics, yoga, art classes and more.
“They Casey Center roof has had some serious problems, especially with all the rain this summer,” Hanson told the ARB. “We provide the Casey Center for gymnastics classes.”
She said the roof repairs are providing the least expensive option that will give two to three more years of life to the aging building until another recreation building can be completed.
“Engineers said money we put into the Casey Center is money we will never see again,” Hanson said. “We think the new center is three years away.
“We will spray this over the roof. It will look like a roof sprayed with concrete foam. This is going to be a rough texture.”
ARB member Joel Arenson asked if the roof had mold and mildew underneath.
“Yes, there are gaping holes,” Hanson said, who added that the repairs will stop the leaks at the building.
