Michael's Message - Digging Deep - Annex Progress
Engineers came and dug a test pit for the storm water drainage system for your new Health & Wellness Annex! They dug down 5 feet and put a yard stick in the hole. They then filled it with water and timed how well our rocky soil “perks”. The water level went down 20 inches in just one hour, so we passed with flying colors and may be able to put in a more affordable drainage system than previously thought.
The next steps are planning of the foundation, the patio and the parking lot in coordination with the structural engineers. We will also fill out an environmental checklist, decide on exterior materials and colors and get the application packet ready to submit to the City for design review and then our building permit. Step by step we are getting closer to a real groundbreaking. Please continue to support the building fund, and stay tuned!
