Site Plans, Floor Plans, Interior and Exterior Renderings and a beautiful model (pictured above) were presented to enthusiastic and unanimous approval by both Committees. The Project now moves into the Construction Document Phase with Bidding scheduled for Spring 2013 and Construction slated to begin early Summer 2013.
