A. CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE CHANGES
Permit process has been extended to mid-November
Construction tentatively scheduled to begin November 15
Construction completion targeted for mid-June 2017
First service in new facility expected to be mid-August 2017 (as originally planned)
B. RENEWABLE ENERGY PLANS
A Renewable Energy Working Group has been working over the past six weeks to prepare a proposal for consideration by the Board of Trustees in October and a congregational vote on November 6. The group includes members of the Board of Trustees, BFF, Green First and has been augmented with two members with extensive engineering experience who serve as independent advisors to the Board.
The proposal, along with supporting materials, will be put on this website as soon as it is available for review.
Please attend the Town Hall meetings following Sunday services October 16, 23, and 30 to get full details and share any questions or concerns.
C. BFF FINANCES
The budget now stands at $4,241,803 but still contains several items that may increase or decrease as we get bids and complete the permit process.
There is also the possibility of additional changes during the construction period.
Revenues (pledge commitments + mortgage) total $4,118,099. In addition, we are raising $38,000 specifically to include an LED screen and hearing loops in the sanctuary and playground equipment. That leaves about $86,000 to be raised by the end of the year.
We have raised 98% of our budget. If you wish to help us “finish strong” in order to have 100% as we begin construction or if you have questions, please contact Howard Roitman (3034.495.4843; email@example.com) or Spud Van de Water (303.506.7859; firstname.lastname@example.org).
