May12>Holland Project Approvals

UUCT votes to replace the HVAC in Holland Sanctuary…

At the annual meeting,

  • the congregation voted to move ahead with replacing the HVAC in Holland Sanctuary.
  • They authorized signing the contract
    • with Durazo Construction for $318,624,
    • which Ken Asch, Vice President for Operations — did on Monday, May 8.
  • We have raised $36,240 in pledges and checks
    • toward the shortfall of $60,900.
  • We anticipate a grant from TEP of several thousand dollars
    • due to increased efficiency of the new HVAC.
  • We continue to look for money
    • to finish funding the shortfall.


  • The congregation also voted for the motion
    • to work on refreshing the bathrooms as dedicated money becomes available.
    • We would be the contractors for that job.
    • There will be more information on this as plans and costs develop.


  • The motion to build the ramp at this time failed
    • because of the cost,
      • but also because the design is in flux.


New ideas are coming forward

  • that we need to evaluate
  • to find the one that best fits our needs
  • and is compatible with our beautiful mid-century building.


Have an idea?, send it to Margot

I will be sending frequent reports as we get underway with the demolition and construction.

Stay tuned for this exciting adventure.
