- Expect lots of noise as crews continue to dig out the cardio area where the old office space was.
- Wednesday (12/4) and Thursday (12/5) (dependent on weather) footings will be poured.
- On December 11 (again dependent on weather) there will be major pouring of concrete in the northern portion of the addition. This may disrupt flow in and out of the building and will last around 3 hours.
- The doors in the shop are being removed today.
- The curb near the entrance is going to be painted either today or tomorrow.
More gravel is being hauled into the site to help mitigate the mud being tracked into the parking lot.

The canopy move will be delayed 2 hours this morning to allow traffic to die down so the crane can get on the road.
November 14, 2013
Some of you are aware that the canopy (or porte-cochere as some want it referred to) will not be moving today but will be (if all works out and the weather holds) moved on November 20 at approximately 9:00 AM.
The bus stop has been moved once again and is now on the other side of Raintree. This move alleviates the bus having to drive through the parking lot to turn around. The bus is now going down Drake, turning on Raintree, picking up across the street and continuing on its way.
On November 15 around noon to 1:00 PM there will be cement trucks arriving to pour footings in the north area of construction. These will be large trucks and their arrival, turning and departure may impact the drop-off zone in front of the new entrance. Over the course of the afternoon there should be 3 trucks arrive, pour and depart.
The fenced areas of the parking lot will be changing during the week of November 25. The north area will get smaller because the construction dumpsters currently on the North end of the lot will be moved to the south of the building across from the handicap parking. Our dumpsters will remain where they are. We will be gaining more parking in that lot. The fenced area in front of the building will expand to include the spots across from the south handicap parking and this fencing will close off the connection between the two lots stopping some of the traffic and improving safety for visitors.

The expansion has begun. You'll notice that the safety construction fence has been installed, please do not cross the fence so crews can work safely and efficiently. We are becoming familiar with new parking situation. If you are visiting the Senior Center during busy hours (typically mornings until about 11:00 AM) you might consider using the second entrance (west entrance) to the parking lot. After turning into the lot, look to your right because there are frequently spaces available there. After you park follow the construction fence with the green netting to the entrance on the east side of the building. Look for the entry signs.
If you need assistance with the entry door or with the back patio doors you will find a newly installed doorbell located on a post. Ring it and staff will be there to help you get in the building.
There are bike racks in the back of the building and some will be relocated near the front door as soon as possible. Please be patient with us as not all our changes can happen at one time. The bus stop is not located on Raintree and you will see the bus bench at that location.
What is going on in the building?
Crews have started dismantling the administration area. Doors and windows are being removed so they can be re-used in the addition or repurposed.
Next week the admin area will be detached from the main building and demolition of it will begin. Be prepared for some noise.
Keep checking our site for future construction updates.
Thanks for your patience while we build a bigger, better Senior Center.
