In planning for the acquisition of a new property at 82 Church St. we had some upfront costs, some estimated costs and the realization that there will be some unforeseen costs. The Town of Ajax required a whole series of studies and reports before they would allow a building permit. We tried our best to find consultants that would provide the needed information yet be sensitive to costs. We take the issue of Biblical stewardship seriously, and when costs have seemed unreasonable, we have sought to mitigate the expense. A good example was in negotiating the fee that the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority expected, by about a third. As we move forward in budgeting and the next phase of construction, we will seek to a keep close eye on projected costs. We hope to outline and discuss plans and opportunities for consideration. The Durham District Catholic School Board has offered to sell or lease a portion of land right behind our backyard, suitable for a walkway to Village Gardens and overflow parking. We are looking to the end of March to have a congregational meeting to update everyone on the progress of our efforts, and plan our next actions together.
Immediately, we could still use your input for the interior design space for our forthcoming auditorium. To help with this process, we have put together a video and theological considerations on "Architecture" to base our choices, architecture and building articles for planning consideration, sample pictures of our template for design with technical dimensions as well as pictures to view and help with design ideas. This is all found on our website from our main page entitled: Our Permanent Home - SAFE HAVEN COMMUNITY CHURCH (safehavenworship.com). Please be in prayer for the processing of our submission to the Town of Ajax. They have said it may take up to two months to deal with our case. We pray that it may go quicker than that.
