Given the complexities encountered in the Design Build confusion, the limited square footage/for the cost, the questionable priority of the “Yoga Garden”, and the delays already encountered, I would appreciate reconsideration of the entire design build approach.
Since we have already missed our deadline relative to LA Fitness, I would also appreciate reconsideration of the current plan — having talked in recent weeks with a number of Y members who use the Y, they were clear that they preferred increase in exercise space, updating of shower facilities over amenities such as the Yoga garden.
If we proceed forward, let’s hire a design firm and do the planning right before we put out the building contract.
On a sore topic, are we ever going to get our purchasing procedures working properly? Again, is there anything that Council can do to assist in getting purchasing processes on track?
