Parking Deck to Close and Final Power Washing Scheduled Next Week
We plan to shut down the upper level of the parking deck on Monday (Oct 6) through Wednesday (Oct
8) to complete maintenance which was started earlier this month. There will be a seal coat put on the surface
to keep the weather from deteriorating the concrete as much as possible the next few years.
If the weather allows, the upper level will be closed for those three days…with reopening scheduled for Thursday (Oct 9).
We will not be suspending parking enforcement, but will direct traffic to the all-day parking lot between the
Penn Theatre and library.
Thank you for your patience. A few days of maintenance now will keep us from having to shut down the deck
for longer periods of time, especially if we have another hard winter.
Also, we will conduct our last power washing of the year on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights/
overnights (Oct 5-7) if the weather permits.
If you have any questions…please email or call the office.

Plymouth United Way 2014 Campaign is Underway
Plymouth Community United Way (PCUW) has kicked off its 2014 Campaign
to raise money for programs that improve lives in Plymouth, Canton and Western Wayne County.
Now celebrating 70 years of making a significant social impact in local communities, PCUW continues to
focus on basic needs, education and stability.
For the last several years, PCUW has been busy providing emergency food,
rent and utility assistance because of the downturn in the economy. In addition
to basic needs, this year’s contributions will help PCUW pursue its Community Impact Initiative to advance the common good and improve the lives of all
residents. The
initiative aims to prevent problems before a crisis occurs.
In an effort to address issues, grants were awarded last year to organizations
attempting to make lasting change. Funding was provided for food pantries,
bus transportation for seniors, housing for adults with
developmental disabilities, shelter for domestic violence victims and their children, hospice, grief counseling, substance abuse assessment and treatment, and
opportunities for youth to develop skills and become valuable community
members. PCUW also awarded grants to Plymouth Canton Community
Schools (Bridge program to prepare 9th grade students for success in high
school and an after school pilot program to mentor and tutor elementary students) and Southeast Michigan Veterans Stand Down to assist homeless veterans.
Donations can be made online at www.plymouthunitedway.org or to Plymouth
Community United Way, 960 W. Ann Arbor Trail, Suite 2, Plymouth, MI
48170. For information about giving through employee payroll deduction, contact Linda Ann Chomin, Campaign & Community Relations Associate at (734)
