Houma Civic Center hurricane upgrades completed
HOUMA - Renovations to make the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center more resilient to hurricanes have been completed.
Beginning in 2012, The Courier reports Terrebonne Parish began the work of hardening key facilities around the parish to allow needed officials and first responders to perform the work of getting the parish back on its feet after hurricanes.
The Civic Center was included in an effort by the parish to make public buildings more resistant to hurricanes. The work includes upgrading windows, hardening exteriors and bolstering roofs.
The center's mitigation improvements, along with those of the Houma Police Station, the Government Tower, Generating Station, Fire Station and Public Safety Building, are being funded through roughly $5 million in FEMA grants.
