Work continues on the bio-retention ponds and the new parking lot, laying of block for Legacy Hall is underway, and the excavation has started for the new porte cochere entry. In addition, the concrete surface is being added to the new bridge with a completion date of March 1. The new parking area (previously 104 Belle Meade Blvd.) is available for use. Please respect all barriers, cones, and warning tapes. Due to ongoing constuction, the porte cochere doors are limited to emergencies only. If you require a handicap accessible entrance, please use the side door to the nave located closest to the corner of Belle Meade Blvd. and Harding Rd. There is a large button that will facilitate hands free entry, or feel free to use the main doors to the nave located on the circle.

Building Committee Update
February 7, 2019
Good afternoon all!
One of the risks of reporting on upcoming activities is things don’t always unfold as planned. Last month I wrote that we expected to have the base coat of asphalt down in the parking areas. Unfortunately, the relatively wet weather we’ve been experiencing didn’t allow this to occur before the asphalt plants shut down for the winter (a regular occurrence). The plants will reopen in early March and we’ll get the asphalt down at that time. In the meantime, the pervious pavers have been installed in the actual parking bays and these areas are open for your use on Sundays. These pavers have been installed as a component of our overall water quality plan to ensure that as stormwater leaves our site and enters Richland Creek, it has been cleansed of impurities by filtering it through the stone below the pavers before being discharged into public waterways. These pervious pavers will be supplemented soon with the construction of bio-retention ponds that serve a similar purpose.
Installation of irrigation and landscaping has commenced in the parking areas in advance of paving in early to mid-March. So, by the time the asphalt goes down in those areas the parking islands and surrounding areas will be fully landscaped.
A significant event occurred at the end of January with the first concrete blocks being laid for Legacy Hall. Recent rains have slowed this work but by the end of March the structural walls that will give shape to Legacy Hall will be standing tall.
Work on the bridge that will provide access to the rear entry is progressing and should be complete by the end of February. Note that this doesn’t mean it will be available for use by parishioners, but it will allow the contractor to access this area of the site in a manner that will clear the way for construction to commence on the “connector” that will tie Legacy Hall to the existing building.
Thanks once more for your patience as work continues—it seems like we have a long way to go but we’ll be worshiping together in Legacy Hall in less than a year!
