Building Project Update 8/1/19
We have been meeting on a regular basis to work through the initial stages of the design phase of our building project. Many thanks to all of the folks who offered input in the development of our “Building Program”. We knew from the outset that our ‘wish list’ and our budget would demand some careful massaging so that we could design a project that both serves our needs and at the same time fits within our budget. When we did the first pass through with our wishlist the cost estimation came out to about 3.7 million dollars; well above our budget of 2.5 million dollars. This led us to a long and careful discussion about the wisdom of either borrowing the money to complete the dream project or cutting the project scope and/or deferring parts of the building program to a later date. We have come to the firm and unanimous conclusion that this phase of the building program must stay within our budget of 2.5 million dollars. We have trimmed the program as much as possible and have asked that several meeting rooms, some of the offices and a day chapel be designed but not included in this phase of the project. We continue to thank the members of the building committee for their hard work and the beautiful way that they are taking very seriously their responsibility as stewards of this important project.
