Phase One Plans

Phase 1 plans

The first improvements include wheelchair accessible restrooms and a new entrance which will be easily accessible from a drop off area near the parking lot. The lobby will have display cases and the long hallway wall outside the restrooms will provide an exhibition area for art work. Most of these new facilities will be in an addition built on the west side of the original building.
