It was another exciting week of progress for the Access project! Inside, the stairs were cleaned up and had a polyurethane coating applied. They look gorgeous! See above. The railing for the new ramp was installed (right). The ramp leads from the elevator to the west entrance at the front of the sanctuary.
The big news is that it finally warmed up enough to do more of the exterior work. The huge pile of dirt in the yard is now gone. Most of the dirt was put back against the church building so it’s at a proper grade for water drainage. The area around the building is prepared for concrete to be poured for sidewalks. You’ll note the white circles in the photo; that’s where bollards will stand to prevent drivers from parking on the sidewalk.
Until further notice, access to the building is only through the front doors. Please reserve spaces in the side lot for those with mobility challenges.
Have you marked your calendar for Sunday, May 3?! The UUCSH building dedication will be held at 2pm.
