The ESBC had a fantastic meeting on August 12, which started by executing the Owner’s Project Manager (OPM) contract with Compass Project Management. Immediately after, the team hit the ground running by reviewing a Request for Designer Services (RFS) that will be used to procure the professional designer. The remainder of the meeting was spent reviewing an activity timeline, with forecasts for key milestone dates leading all the way to an eventual start date for construction.
The team could not be more excited; things will begin happening quickly, and will soon be planning community engagement events to get community feedback and provide updates. The public is always welcome to be heard at all ESBC public meetings (next date to be posted soon).
