The Canopy Accord: Compromise reached on canopy at SMOA

The Herald-Tribune reported on March 31, 2015 that a compromise was reached which will save about 3/4 of the Paul Rudolph designed canopy that was in danger of being demolished. The newspaper reported:

"Under the agreement, about 30 feet of canopy that blocks access to space between the brick schoolhouse, Building 41, and Sarasota High’s Building 42 will be removed. This will provide access to the rear of Building 41 for construction trucks, and, after SMOA opens, caterers, loading operations and emergency vehicles."
