April ShowersWednesday, May 4th, 2011
They say April Showers bring May flowers, but they also put a damper on construction. The majority of the work left to be done on the City Center expansion is on the exterior of the building. Panels are going up to finish off each entry way, along with the glass for the lighted main entry and the new lettering on the canopy.
As the interior construction comes to a close, other renovation projects will start, making our existing spaces just as exciting as our new spaces. Our Main Hall is expected to get an overhaul, with a new sound system in the works, as well as some acoustical upgrades.

Construction here at the City Center is coming to an end. On the schedule for this week and next week are various inspections of the new systems, and the removal of some of the construction trailers.
