When: The design work for this project is ongoing and expected to be completed in 2022. An additional Public Information Session is tentatively planned for late fall 2022. Construction is expected to start in the summer of 2023, pending approvals including budget and overall construction coordination. The timing for the project will be confirmed closer to construction.
