improvements that range in cost from $1000 to $852,305 (Boykin 2013). “Residents were asked to review the CCMP and indicate their priorities, as part of the ongoing development of the plan” said Boykin.

“President Doug Kennett or Vice President Greg Bender, Planning and Design Committee Chair Ford Chinworth, Thomas Kerns of Kerns Group Architects (KGA) gave an overview of the plan’s contents” said Boykin (2013). The CCMP, initiated in 2011, serves as an outline of possible projects to be developed, after the Fitness Center is completed, which is supposed to take place around 2015 (Boykin 2013).

Proposed enhancements are divided into three categories: site/exterior, lower level, and main level (Boykin 2013). The most expensive renovations include the redesign and relocation of amenities and offices on the main level. Proposed changes include the removal of raised floors in the lounge and café, expanded café seating, a market space reduction, and enlarged entries and restrooms (Boykin 2013). If the changes go through, the administrative offices would be changed to allow for more efficient office and meeting space (Boykin 2013).
