The much-anticipated renovation of the Pattaya Youth Centre faces frustrating delays, sparking concerns among top officials. The Chairman of the Pattaya Sports and Recreation Committee, Visan Petchtrakul, and Deputy Mayor Kritsana Boonsawat are deeply worried about the project’s progress.

Slated for transformation into a vibrant, multifunctional space themed Music, Sports, Art, and Performance, the centre, located in Soi Thepprasit 9 has hit a significant snag. Despite the design phase being on the verge of completion, a clear renovation concept remains elusive, causing unexpected delays.

To address this, the city committee is hustling to devise strategies aimed at overcoming these obstacles and speeding up the project. A crucial part of their plan involves a scheduled discussion with Pattaya Mayor Poramet Ngampichet, seeking support and guidance to clear up the conceptual uncertainties and secure the necessary backing to push the project forward.

Another major decision looms over the future of the centre’s old gymnasium. The committee is torn between demolishing the ageing structure or opting for renovation. To navigate this dilemma, a subcommittee will be established to thoroughly assess both options and provide well-informed recommendations, reported Pattaya Mail.
