Four dates in April have been scheduled for Building Enhancement Project-related activities.
On April 9th the Board of Trustees will discuss the cost of upgrades that have been identified in the recent seismic report, and determine the best way to pay for what’s needed. Contractor estimates of up to $500K have been reduced, thanks to one of our longtime members who recalled information on original construction of the building foundation, long since covered over by subsequent construction.
Following the second service on April 15th we’ll have another informal Q & A session in the Library. Building Design Team members will be on hand to share details about the status of the project, timeline, process, and coming activities.
The City of Corvallis requires a neighborhood meeting prior to submittal of our land use application. This meeting will be held on Monday, April 16th at 6 pm in the Social Hall. This meeting is not an informational session for the congregation, but an opportunity to describe our proposed project to our neighbors, answer their questions, and listen to their concerns. Following this meeting, our land use application for Conditional Development Permit with Major Lot Option will be submitted to the City.
The last Town Hall meeting of the series will be devoted to Building Enhancement Project topics, and will be held on Thursday, April 19th at 7 pm in the Social Hall. General information will be shared, and everyone will have an opportunity to brainstorm in small-group sessions on specific facets of the project, such as kitchen design, landscape, communication systems, and general layout.
