Footers have been poured for the new maintenance building west of the Main Building.
The steps to the front porch have been removed as the site is prepared for the new fully accessible ramped entrance with automatic doors.
Work continues on the first phase of interior renovation for the reception, administrative and marketing areas.
Contractors arrived on September 15 to begin the replacement of the original water main to the Main Building. They were able to complete phase one of this work without having to shut the water off. Work will continue into the week of September 18.

The front entrance drive, parking and two front entrances to the Main Building are now closed for construction, with emergency access only. Signage on the drive directs visitors to entrances and parking at the west (rear) entrance and the Health Care Center parking lot. A construction perimeter has been established with orange fencing and only authorized construction personnel are permitted within the construction zone.
The first phase of interior renovation has begun and a temporary wall has been constructed to close access to the Founders Room (foyer) and the east side of the corridor.
A newly created parking area, southwest of the Main Building, is currently in use by employees. It will remain in stone until curbs and sewers have been installed later in the project.
Current parking spaces in the west lot (at the rear of the Main Building) have been reallocated and designated for resident/visitor parking or employee parking. This has created additional parking for residents and visitors near the entrance. Maps throughout the building (and below) indicate the designation of parking areas. The plan should allow ample parking for all. Everyone is asked to park only in designated spaces and to comply with posted restrictions. Entrances and emergency and delivery access should never be blocked.

Wiring for the emergency nurse call system in Phase II of Independent Housing ran underground through the area of the new employee parking area. Relocation of the wires was completed on Wednesday, August 23. Maintenance staff tested the emergency nurse call system in each Phase II home and the system is back online.
Excavation continues for the new employee parking area north of the Health Care Center parking lot. The lot will initially consist of a stone surface until additional areas are ready for paving.
Upon completion of the new employee parking area, the teardrop drive and parking areas in front of the Main Building will be closed. Traffic will be directed to the west entrances and parking maps will be posted showing designated areas for employee and resident/guest parking. The exterior doors located in the Founders Room and The Courtyards entrance will be closed (except for emergencies). A construction perimeter will be established with orange fencing and only authorized construction personnel are permitted within the construction zone.
