The long, cold, wet winter has done its job on more than one project in the area, and we’re no exception. Between contractors being backed up and the bureaucracy wending its way, our park project start is delayed until late summer. Not to worry! Plans haven’t changed. We’re still going to bring you a beautiful park, it’s just going to take a little longer. If all goes well, we should be done with construction by winter, giving the land a chance to breathe and recoup before bursting forth next spring.
Meantime, the delay means the Mill will continue to be open to the public weekends at least until the end of June (if this changes, we’ll let you know right away). It also means we can plan events at the Mill this summer. Last but not least, it means we can fine tune our fund-raising launch before the bulldozers arrive and the banner goes up (we haven’t told you about this yet) in a few weeks.
