About the project, it started a little under 2 years ago in September of 2022 and began with just the renovations of the restrooms to meet ADA compliancy. After doing an assessment of the facility it was found that there were asbestos and other toxic materials, which can be very harmful to staff and guests who work or visit the building. With safety as a priority, GVRD made the decision to renovate the building. The renovation included meeting new building codes, therefore upgrading the plumbing and electrical, widening of the hallways and doors, and reconfiguration of the main lobby for ADA. Other items were office modernization, HVAC, and restrooms. The project was funded through Measure K (parcel tax passed in 2012) and the general fund.
