Design team meets with architect, consultants and contractor

On Tuesday 7/31, members of the TCGIS design team met with our architect, consultants and contractor. The following items are noted:

1) In August, Executive Director Ted Anderson will meet with teaching teams and other staff members to discuss floor plans, finalize classroom adjacencies and examine other key planning issues in advance of the September board meeting. 

2) Timelines for the two required variances (parking spots and principal building lot coverage) were discussed. 

3) Parking contracts with OPC and City of St Paul (McMurray Fields/Como Pool) are on the table and were discussed. 

4) Several options for reducing the square footage to 35% of principal building lot coverage were discussed.
