Today we held an information meeting to give an update on our construction progress. The video can be viewed here. Our architect is shepherding our project through the City of Scottsdale approval process, which due to many factors is long and slow. There are three critical steps that you can be praying for:
FEMA floodplain map: We must have this file in order to proceed with civil engineer work. FEMA said it would take 3-5 weeks to email it to us. It has been 15 weeks. This is a critical path forward that we must get resolved so we can continue to move forward.
Height of new Worship Center building: We have a disagreement over the interpretation of their code. They are consulting with more City employees to come to a conclusion.
City's plan to improve Scottsdale Road did not include left turn access to our church. We think we have this resolved, but we need to finalize the approval.
Our architect also presented a redesign of the front of the new Worship Center building. Taking in the feedback from the congregation, specifically regarding the metal screen in front of the building. We moved away from the rusted steel to a cactus green, reduced the number of vertical steel ribs to open it up and make it more inviting. We also opened the front of the screen to reveal the stain glass cross - it looks like the curtain in the Temple that was torn from top to bottom to signify Jesus' sacrifice gives us direct access to God now.
