The design team is now refining the schematic designs with greater detail, and will share the latest design concepts with the community at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the Community Center, 320 Civic Drive.

Decisions to be made during this phase include construction materials and products, such as roofing, windows, doors and siding; finish types and colors for ceilings, carpeting and walls; and detailed floor plans that show activities areas and layout of the furniture. Plans for parking, walkways and paths will also be completed during this phase.

Landscape Architect, Einwiller Kuehl will also complete plans for outdoor spaces including plantings and trees locations.

The proposed programming and space plan is now available for viewing online or downloading.
