Capital Campaign/Project Update – November 2019

Over the summer, engineering firm Van Note Harvey conducted a required survey of the flood line on church property. They are now putting together the site plan, and we have engaged an attorney (Ryan P. Kennedy, who is offering us a discounted rate) to sign the site plan applications and attend the hearing once it is set. Four site applications have been prepared – for the Mercer County Planning Board, Mercer County Soil Conservation District (for soil erosion etc.), D&R Canal Commission, and the NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Land Use Regulation.

We will soon have architectural drawings to share with the congregation!!

If you haven’t yet made a commitment to support the Capital Project, please consider doing so. Recall that our original “wish list” came with a $1.7 million estimated price tag, and the goal we ultimately decided on (at the recommendation of our consultant) is $1.1 million. We have $915,558 pledged so far. The higher our pledge commitments, the more “wish list” items we will be able to include in the renovation plans.

Keep an eye out for news bulletins on the UUCWC website, the lobby screen, and these monthly CrossCurrents updates!
