Today was a cold day outside (-32*), but inside we worked feverishly as we calculated the hours and determined we were in deadline crunch time. As of 8:30 this morning, we had exactly 56 hours until our first presentations to the Planning and Zoning Commission. This meant the teams had to divide and conquer. Everyone had to work!!
Some team members worked on the budget details. Others prepared pictures and handouts for our Planning and Zoning as well as City Council members. And, still others worked on letters that would be sent out to potential donors explaining our project and the features that might be available for purchase and or donations to bring our project to fruition as we have designed them.
Some continued on with the never ending details of the design process. Always room for improvement......
BJ came in to check on our progress and to give us much needed advice on how to calculate the costs for our water features, block pathways and landscaping plants. We are so grateful for his willingness to share his expertise with us.
BJ spent so much time explaining the ins and outs of how to figure the number of pavers, rocks, and other materials needed for our park features.
He even stayed after hours to work alongside one eager beaver!! (Isaac was a determined and engaged man......You can almost see the wheels turning in his head as he wraps his brain around BJ's coaching rhetoric.
Mason worked hard at researching sundials. He was intent and very focused on the task at hand!
And, our PR man, Damien, kept us in awesome pictures with his excellent photography skills. We could not have such great blogs without him! Thanks, Damien!! We appreciate your good work and the fact that you throw out the not-so-flattering pics....We owe you Hu Hot!
