Latest Building Concept
The Tredo Group met with the Long Range Planning Committee in July presented an updated proposal for what our building project could look like. Some of its prominent features include a scaling back of the proposed fellowship hall and a new east entrance that would better accommodate handicap parking spaces and traffic flow. If you have question, you can get in touch with Long Range Planning chairman Aaron Lambrecht.
