EDGE Property Committee Update July 1, 2019

The EDGE Property Committee is a group of dedicated people who are passionate about seeing our rebuild to completion. They are Reverends Andy and Lorraine, Holly Todd-Williamson (Secretary), Pat Innes, Scott Sinclair, Crawford Heritage, David Snelgrove, John Clement, Doug Gilpin and Brian North (Chair).

We are also fortunate to have the wisdom and insight of Bill Newman, Chair of Council, and Michael Wright from EDGE, who guides us through some intense planning.

Legal documents are basically ready to go with some fine-tuning required, as we get closer to a closing date. We have met with our partners at Succession and Amica and all are anxious to move forward.

Bell work is now complete.

Archeologists are on site and we expect them to complete their work by the end of the summer or sooner.

Our Architects are on track dealing with Structural, Mechanical and Electrical engineers as well as Interior designer, and Acoustical consultants.

We expect to sign the final lease agreement within sixty days of the land being deemed as clear. Foundation permit application still expected to be submitted sometime this summer.

Excavation will start shortly after the signed agreement including the compacting of the soil with construction of the concrete raft commencing not long after that.

Church Building should be completed approximately one year from starting construction once the foundation and parking level have been completed.

Retirement residence should be completed for occupancy approximately two years from starting.The EDGE Property Committee continues to work toward meeting the goals as set out by this committee and our partners.

Respectfully submitted by Brian North (Chair of EDGE Property Committee)
