PROJECT UPDATES

FACILITIES MASTER PLAN DRAFT – The report is almost complete. The document will address all that has been completed in the past with the Bond money, projects in design, and future projects on the wish list. It should be ready for the Board to approve in November or December.

PROJECTS IN DESIGN:

The next milestone is to complete design and start working drawings with owner approval.
