Renovations at Westover Hills

Long-awaited renovations at the Westover Hills Branch are moving along quite well. Please pardon our noise and dust but the end result will be worth the wait.

Here is a quick upate:
  1. The public restrooms are scheduled to be completed on Wednesday, Feb. 28th, with new ceramic tile on the walls and floors and new bathroom fixtures, etc.
  2. The automatic door and heat curtain (parking lot entrance) have been installed. Electrical wiring is next.
  3. The new water fountain, replacement carpet squares, and walls painted in the construction areas should be done by Feb. 28th.
  4. Demolition has been started on the existing sidewalk for the front entrance this morning. The new sidewalk is scheduled for completion and open for use on Monday, Feb. 26th.
  5. Anticipated demolition on the sidewalk for the rear entrance is Monday, Feb. 26th, weather permitting. We're expecting completed construction on the new sidewalk one week after start date.

Other improvements:

  • April - May '07 - Department of Public Works projected timeframe for new A/C Unit
  • July - August '07 - Department of Public Works projected timeframe for City of the Future interior & exterior improvements (i.e., replace windows and light fixtures, install new carpet in staff work areas, provide additional electrical outlets, etc.)

Come by the Westover Hills Branch and see the improvements!
