January 2011 Building News

In December C. T. Wilson Construction Company was selected by CITP to build our Sanctuary and Administration/Education buildings. Subsequent to their selection, the builder has been working with Keith Shaw, our architect, and members of the Building/Planning committee to arrive at a construction cost that meets our budget requirements. Once this process is complete, the contract will be negotiated. Negotiations should begin in early February.

Construction is scheduled to begin in early March.  Weather suitable for clearing and foundation work should be more predictable then.

A ceremonial groundbreaking is scheduled for February 19th at 11:00 AM with a rain date on February 20th at 3:00 PM.

A Furnishings/Interiors Committee has been formed.  Joan Zollinger is chairing this committee. Committee members include: Harriet McGraw, Margaret Hatcher, Bart Holtz and Bill Dengler.  

This committee will also make available a list of items suitable for donating in a loved one's memory/honor. For example, in celebration of the Wehmuellers' 50th wedding anniversary, the baptismal font has been donated by their children.  Please contact Joan Zollinger for information about other items that have been identified for donation.

Emphasis is being placed on "green" construction practices and interior finishes.  We will be adding information in the coming weeks listing those "green" features.

We are currently working with the builder to determine ways our members can contribute "sweat equity." As construction gets under way, opportunities will be announced. Not only is this a way to lower costs but also a way for our members to play a more significant role in the building of our church.
