Planning continues for our building renovation. On August 2nd, project managers Lori Thomson, Paul Anderson, and I met with the City of Bloomington Public Works Department for another development plan review. Various departments from fire, police to utilities, water, and maintenance were represented as the city continued to examine our renovation plans. Together with their helpful input and all the good work of Paul, Lori, and Building Committee members, our dream for a expanded and more ministry effective facility is slowly and surely coming into focus. If all goes well, the formal building plan will be presented to the Planning Commission in late September and following their approval, the City Council in October. In the meantime, we’ll have a project update between worship services on Sunday, September 18th. It’s very exciting. Thank you all!
