Built By Love Phase 2
Our Built By Love Phase 2 project is well on its way to being fully funded by the generous pledges of our parishioners. So far we have received pledges totaling $76,810. The elevator installation, bathroom renovation, and Parish Hall upgrades will cost $80,800. Because pledges are so close to this amount, Vestry has voted to go ahead with the project and give a deposit to Mobility Elevator & Lift Company to lock in their 2014 quote for the Orion commercial LULA (Limited Use Limited Application) elevator. We are pleased that MMC will also honor their original Built By Love quotes for the construction work.
Mobility will start the lengthy permit process towards the end of 2017, with the construction to be started in June 2018. The plan is to have it completed that summer. We had already constructed the pit and sump pump for the elevator during the original renovations so that we would not have to undo any of the Phase 1 work during the elevator installation.
You will see work being done this spring as the bell tower repairs and air conditioner installation from Phase 1 will be completed. The chart below shows the scope of the Phase 2 work that Vestry has authorized. It also shows the other parts of the project that we hope to complete if funds become available.
We thank all of our BBL pledgers. Your dedication to St. John’s is inspiring. Pledges are already being fulfilled, which gave Vestry the confidence to make definite plans.
We welcome new pledges and hope to receive enough pledges so that we can complete the entire project without the need to borrow any funds. Every dollar we save by not spending on unnecessary interest goes directly into the programs we promote.
