    Director Rortvedt provided a brief building process update at the May board meeting.

    She reviewed the memo she sent to board members. In the memo, architecture firm OPN recommends establishing building process work teams. The teams will work through the building process step-by-step and are setup to ensure broad community input.

    Director Rortvedt and Assistant Director Saecker are working with OPN to create the teams and a schedule with solid dates.
