This will include 56 new trees along the fence and trees and plants in the parking islands along the building. The new water lines have been installed across 46th Avenue, both at McKinley and Arthur Streets. Repaving of those intersections will be completed next week.

Plumbing lines are being installed in the foundatoin prior to pouring the slab. Grading continues on the south parking lot and asphalt will be laid either Friday or early next week. Meanwhile, in the north parking lot drainage and the new sewer connection are being installed. This has caused some parking congestion for which we appologize. Also, we will soon be repaving the entire west side of the campus, adding new paring, landscape islands, irrigation and driving lanes.
