The original January 25, 2016 motion stated that "groundbreaking for each phase of the building project would not commence until the 42% cash on hand and 85% of the money pledged was attained." Over the past three months, the Building Project Committee created a prioritized list of items to be completed in phase four. Many of the items in the prioritized list can be completed with individual contractors instead of pursuing a general contractor to oversee the project. The motion going before the society will allow the building project committee to proceed with phase four items in which money is already available. There is approximately $500,000 cash on hand and $1 million pledged for the final phase of the project.
A small portion of the itemized list will likely require the use of an architect and be bid out to general contractors. The building project committee would proceed with this portion of the list provided the 42% and 85% fundraising thresholds are met.
