Sanctuary Restroom Remodel
For some time now much conversations and consideration has been given to the inadequacies of our sanctuary restrooms and how to resolve them. This dialogue led us to conduct an overall facility evaluation to ensure that we were not only addressing the short term needs but the needs we will face in the future. We have been working with an engineering firm to create a long-range building plan to better guide our decisions and this process is nearing an end. we look forward to sharing more about this plan in the upcoming months.
What has become apparent in this process is that building a new foyer, with ADA compliant restrooms, on to our sanctuary is going to take an extended timetable to raise capital, get permitting, and finally construction.
This led us to explore a new solution that would address a critical part of our restroom concern and still fit in the long-range plan. This plan would be a complete remodeling of our existing restrooms that would provide us with:
1-Unisex ADA compliant restroom
1-Women's restroom with three toilets
These facilities would occupy our current restroom space and thus still be behind the sanctuary. The benefit of this proposal is that it resolves not having an ADA restroom, creates maximum flexibility/usage, and can be completed in 3 months at a cost of $27,500.
We will be discussing and voting on this proposal at our Church Quarterly Conference on August 20th at 6:00 PM.
