Progress Update - August 18

Posted by: Ron McArthur

The repaving of our parking lot is now complete. Aside from the very poor condition that our parking lot was in, one of the reasons for having it repaved was so the layout could be changed to increase parking spaces. As a result:

  • Handicap parking has been moved to the north and south parking lots, with more direct access to building entrances
  • The centre roadway was removed and some of the parking space now face north/south rather than east/west to improve traffic flow
