Building the Dream Update

This email was just sent to the Congregation:

The 1U Building Team has been working hard behind the scenes over the summer.  As you may remember, we’ve been working on making our big dreams and our budget to align.  We’ve made progress with KTH, our Architect, and now have plans to share with the congregation.  We are excited!

Since the very beginning of this journey, our vision has been centered on integrating our campus, maintaining a safe and improved RE space for our Children, enhancing our presence along Robinson, and going green with as many options as we can.  Our new plans remain true to this vision and we’re achieving them through three means:

  • Reducing the square footage to reasonable growth expectations.
  • Renovating and using more of our existing Enrichment Center, although there will still be a new building.
  • Putting together a plan to raise more money to bridge the gap.

We look forward to meeting with you and getting feedback.

So, mark your calendar – this coming Sunday (September 20th) there will be three (3) gatherings scheduled to share this information.  These meetings will be in the RE Assembly Room at the following times – 9:30 to 10:30, 11:00 to 12:00, and 12:30 to 1:30.  We’ve spread these meeting out so that folks can choose a time that fits best with when they would like to attend one of the two services provided.   This won’t be the last meeting on this either – more time will be scheduled as needed.

We appreciate your patience as we’ve worked through our challenges.  We’re grateful for the continued trust and support.  Thank you!

Should you have questions, feel free to drop us an email any time @ bldgcommunications@orlandouu.org.

Thank you,
Christine & The Building The Dream team
