The Crayola Experience in downtown Easton will close for two to three months for renovations, a company official said Tuesday night.
"We will have a shutdown period of about 60 to 90 days while we make some changes in the facility," general manager Dan Aylward said in an e-mail. "We will release details on the project in the near future."
Crayola has offices in Forks Township.
Interviewed outside Tuesday's school board meeting -- where he was there to support the city's KOZ plan -- Panto said he was still waiting for Crayola to confirm the news.
Crayola recently won approval from the city to add large outdoor decorations -- a mural and crayon sculptures -- to its property in Centre Square and along Pine Street.
In the last year, the company has added new attractions to its kid-friendly center and signed a new lease with the city allowing it to move into the former McDonald's space on Northampton Street.
