The concrete restoration project is nearing completion, but there is one final part of the project to address. The front entrance to the building that we are all used to using will need to be totally closed down for resurfacing from 8 am Tuesday, Oct. 2nd until approximately 3 pm Friday, Oct. 5th.
The entryway from the front sidewalk (where you might normally be dropped off or picked up) all the way past the outside apartments on the 6th floor is getting a new surface. It will require the cleaning of the walkway, a primer coat, 2 additional topcoats, and a sealant. We will not be able to walk on it at all during this process. This option was just presented to us and approved a couple of days ago, so I apologize for the short notice. We just did not know if this could really happen or not, and if it could, when it could actually take place.
The following are things we are doing that everyone needs to be aware of:
- All residents, staff, and visitors must enter & exit the building on the 5th floor.
- All transportation will leave & return from the 5th floor.
- Any resident currently parking on the 6th floor will have the option of parking on the 5th floor so they can avoid having to use the stairs, and employees will park on the 6th floor.
- This notice is being sent to all resident contacts so they are aware, but I encourage each resident to let your main contact know what’s happening.
- The 5th floor door does not have an automatic opener, so let your ride know if you need assistance with the door, or notify the receptionist by way of the intercom and we will send someone to help.
- If you or a family member need to get in after 9 pm, let us know in advance if possible and we’ll make special arrangements. Otherwise you can press the intercom button and Mary can assist. We will make sure no one is locked out.
- We will have signs out in the driveway directing all visitors to the “temporary entrance” on the 5th floor.
Please feel free to contact me with ANY questions. We will do everything we can to make this as smooth as possible. I believe you’ll find the finished product to be worth it!
