WEEKLY UPDATE

Parking Alert on West Side of First Street.

On Monday July 31, crews will begin work to install the water line from First Street into the Tudor inspired Windward building on that street. This work will continue throughout the first week of August. The parking stalls on the West side of First Street will be unavailable and the traffic will be flagged on this street during the day.

Again, much of the exterior work which you can see is ongoing, with roofing and shingles and windows dominating the activity on the outside. A lot is happening in the interiors especially in The Windward along First Street where kitchen cabinets, countertops, tile and vanities are all being installed.

There are two great drone pictures this week on our facebook page.
