Big Changes Are On the Horizon!
After over a year of planning, some much needed changes will be coming to our building over the next
few months! We will be getting a makeover just in time for our 20th anniversary celebration.
Currently in the plans are a complete overhaul of our restrooms, a brand new front entrance/front office
with a new ramp, and our parking lot re-sealed and striped. These projects are long overdue, and will
improve access for everyone utilizing our building. Please be on the
lookout for a letter that will be sent to you explaining the construction These projects are
process and temporary changes. For instance, when they are working
long overdue and
on our front entrance, folks will need to access the building through
the “front” or Chamber of Commerce door. In addition to the letter,
will improve access
I will hold a center-wide meeting on September 20 at 1:00 pm
(following Tasty Tuesday) where questions about the project will be
for everyone
answered. There will also be architect drawings on display to show
utilizing our
what the completed projects will look like. As of press time, we believe that this will begin the first part of October. Stay tuned for more
building.
