As we reported in the September newsletter, the Building Vision Group had filed for 501(c)3 status with the state of New Jersey and is now officially able to use the above name. In the past month, we have met with representatives from Women Aware, attended a training event through the Corporation for Supportive Housing, and finalized a request for proposal, which was sent out to the following architects: Kitchen Associates, Kurt Ludwig, and Design Ideas Group. The return date for these designs is Oct 15, 2010.
The Board members (Elizabeth Hance, Ellen Hamilton, Joan Fekete, Stef Beemsterboer, Linda Lachesnez, and Pastor Susan) will review the designs. At some point we plan to present designs to the congregation, but we need to see how they develop.
In the meantime, we would like to have another Congregational Meeting in order to bring our membership up to date with what we have learned through many meetings and discussions. We know that the calendar is full so we propose a Congregational Meeting on Oct 31st after worship. We hope that many of you will be able to attend.
