EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S REPORT 

Mr. McNeil said that we had our groundbreaking ceremony today at Oakwood Avenue Development and Congressman Payne Jr. and other dignitaries from the State attended.  We had close to 50-60 people there not counting City employees and Orange Housing Authority employees.  He said it marked a continuation of efforts to improve that area of the City.  He said he was very proud of our efforts and the City of Orange as well is proud too.  People from HUD were there, people from the County were there and the Mayor also attended.

Mr. McNeil talked about the new Community Room and new Board room.  He said the residents put the plan together with the Architect and Mr. McNeil.  Mr. McNeil said the Community Room is still not completed.  He said there is a checklist still that has to be completed.  He asked everyone if they notice something that doesn’t look right to let him know he will tell the contractor.

 

Chairman Rimes asked if any permits had to be taken out to do any of the work in the Community Room.

Mr. McNeil said yes, he said they took out a general building permit.  He said there wasn’t  like plumbing that had to be done.  It was more expanding the store and we put up new walls.
