A Site Plan and architectural design are currently in the process of being completed for public discussions and input at public information sessions to be scheduled in the early fall. 

Construction of the development is projected for Fall 2023 with a projected completion date for occupancy in late 2023. The public will be informed of further details and dates of public meetings as the process for development moves forward.
