THE GATHERING PLACE
Formal construction commenced in late June 2016 with work scheduled for the next 10 months. Construction is to be finished in late May 2017 with final items such as asphalt paving, curbs and walks, and landscaping completing the overall project.
There will be consistent photo updates available on both facebook and the L’Arche website throughout the duration of construction. Upcoming newsletters will also provide comprehensive updates. In addition, through the generous support of a local company, Shield Rock, aerial updates of construction will be provided.
Yes, subject to scheduling and availability, there will be opportunities for facility rentals for groups such as service clubs, schools, religious organizations, and special family occasions. Planning is currently underway and additional information will be available as construction progresses.
A professional site plan was developed and approved in the early phase of project planning. Key features will include a nature trail, eco garden, L’Arche gardens, a grove, and community garden plots. As the site matures over time it will become a beautiful park like setting for the community to enjoy for years to come.
Some options include cheque, MC, or Visa. In addition, some supporters have chosen the convenience of using a pre-authorized monthly plan.
