  • The Deacons continue to work with our engineering firm, Weekes Engineering, to progress our parking lot project. 
  • Following our initial application for a building permit in November 2023, the Town of Oakville provided its response with follow-up questions in mid-February 2024. Their questions were administrative in nature, asking for direction for certain specifications in the drawings, construction safety measures during construction, dimensions of the railing assembly for the ramp, etc. We were thankful there were no requests to amend the design or anything requiring changes of any kind.
  • The Deacons met with Weekes to review the Town's questions and prepare responses. 
  • The most substantive question related to securing a geo-technical engineer to complete a Subsurface Investigation Declaration during construction (to confirm the soil is fit for building footings on top of, primarily for the overhang structure at the front doors). We directed Weekes to collect quotes from engineering firms for this work and selected a firm. 
  • Following this, a complete response was submitted to the Town in mid-March. We await the Town's response and see if there are any additional questions. 
  • While waiting for the Town's response has a direct impact on the timing of construction, a target of summer 2024 remains realistic. 
  • Please continue to pray for this project, that the Lord would move in the relevant departments of the Town to facilitate approval of our building permit and for an expedient selection of construction company following that.
