Q: How do you plan to involve local contractors should this project be approved?
A: Using local contractors has been a priority since our earliest discussions. Our Board interviewed only the three architectural firms with strong local connections (Bray, Abacus and Smies Architects). Early in the process we also contacted the three area construction firms with the capacity to complete a project of this nature to inform them of our intentions to use an invited bid for this project with their local companies. Should this project gain approval on February 16th, incorporating local subcontractors will also be a priority.
