Construction Update 04/21/14


Dear Sangha,

There will be some fairly dramatic activity this week.

Work on the Overflow Parking Lot commences today. This involves re-grading the lot to have a nice “crown” that will shed water better than the old lot. This should make the lot usable year-round. We also will see a net gain in parking out there.

Road markers are up out at the entrance. These are delineating a new deceleration lane that will be built sometime soon. The timing is variable due to some technicalities being worked out.

The wash-off pad that I predicted would be moved last week will actually be moved today.

So, basically, everything I said would happen last week is happening this week. Ah how the vagaries of construction like to keep us guessing.

Parking is wide-open in the CMH daylong lot and there are a few spots over by the Barn.

A New Community Meditation Hall
to Support Our Sangha

Located in a serene open grassland hillside setting, with an outdoor terrace and arrival space, the new Community Meditation Hall will create an environment conducive to practice and will form a respectful setting for the precious teachings we offer.

If you’ve attended classes in the Community Hall or volunteered in our administrative offices, you’ll know that the conditions here are not sustainable: dilapidated trailers, challenging lay-out, difficult logistics. This next building phase will be the second of four phases that will complete the approved 1988 build-out of the Spirit Rock campus. Designed by local notable green architectural firm Hart Howerton, our permanent new buildings with green design functions will improve all aspects of Spirit Rock’s programs and operations.
