Phase II; Louise Renovation Update, April 2015
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,

Well, all I can say is that the campus is not gracefully moving into the 21st century but the good news is, it is happening rather it likes it or not.

So far we have been through a flood, a major power outage, and are at four and counting "surprise" water pipe mishaps; we have found three buried tanks (one a 5,000 gallon oil tank,) an oil pit, and a fire pit; cut one alarm phone line, discovered and investigated no less than 5 "mysterious" buried pipes of different varieties, had a fire meter removed instead of a domestic water meter, decommissioned an 800' well, and wrestled with numerous HUGE boulders; freed three spirits, found two fairies, and a couple of interesting artifacts since we began construction first of last year.

But in spite of it all, we keep moving forward. On Monday (Apr 20, 2015) we will be taking one more visible stride toward progress as we begin paving the new Tucker parking lot. Plus if you haven't checked out the Louise Building lately take a quick look, the addition is framed in and we are starting work on the new green roof. We are currently dry walling the inside of the historic building and will be pouring the new front entry here next week. The windows have started to be returned and with the nice weather here we will be painting the exterior in earnest.

A heads up, once the Tucker lot gets paved we will be moving ALL front of campus parking to that lot so that we can get the Chapel and School lot completed. Then we will be moving our attention to the big lot at the back of the Chapel.

I also have to apologize for the length of the power outage to the red shed. PGE is expected end of next week to get our new power run to the new transformer and then we can get power back to the Louise and the shed. A huge thanks for everyone's patience on that one.

I know everybody is anxious to know when we are going to be done and I wish I had a confident answer but I don't. The best I can say is at this point, everyone is dedicated to getting done as quickly as is humanly possible and with all the progress we are making I do expect us to be done early July. The surest sign I have of this is that I am actually starting to turn my attention toward furnishing the new building and in my world that is as good as sign as any that we are headed toward the finish line.

Still have a ways to go and not sure what the site will throw at us next but we should be down to a few months and the majority of the mess and my throbbing headaches will be over. Everyone keep your fingers crossed.

If you have any questions, concerns, issues, or etc. please don't hesitate to give me a call.

What We Have Been Up To!
The year 2015 is off to a great start at Nadaka Nature Park and Garden. The final stages of the park’s natural play area and community garden are progressing beautifully. As of February, Verde has finished seeding the eco-lawn and planting of hundreds of native plants. In addition, ADA ramps into the play area, wooden benches, and berry trellises around the community garden have been completed. The parking lot of St. Aidan’s has recently received some much need TLC and has been partially paved with gravel to make it more accessible to the nature play area.

A big thanks to Alpha High School students who planted over 400 hundred plants in the rain gardens along NE Pacific Street February 23rd. The projected was funded by Federal CDBG funds and will be a great tool for teaching the community about how rain gardens work to improve the health of our watershed. Alpha High School will also be visiting Nadaka every other Tuesday to do stewardship and educational activities starting March 3rd. If you are in the area come and let them know they are doing a great job.
