Facilities Renovations

The FUUSE Facilities Renovation Committee and the Board of Trustees cordially invites you to a presentation on the comprehensive renovation plans for FUUSE which have been many months in development. There is one more opportunity to provide feedback to the leadership regarding the appropriateness of these plans. Come to one meeting or come to both! The meetings will be held in the Sanctuary:

January 29, 2017, 11:15 – 12:15 following the social hour on Sunday

This is a first step in moving ahead to determine how our facilities support our mission at FUUSE. Child care will be available. Please mark this on your calendar and plan to attend.

Update on Building Plans

 

Did you know that two dedicated groups of FUUSE-ians are busily working to move the community’s plans for renovating our physical facilities forward? Here is news from a November 5, 2015, joint meeting of the Capital Campaign Feasibility Study Committee (CCFSC) and Building Task Force.

Continuing Research

  • The CCFSC is focusing on taking the temperature of funding sources and potential donors. Key at this point is to define a preferred building plan, a pledging period, and a target timeline for fundraising in relationship to beginning of construction (most comfortable level would be having 70% (or more) of money on deposit before construction begins)

Requirements for Building Renovations

Renovations to facilities at FUUSE will meet, as much as possible, these requirements that were developed through several meetings and discussions.

A. General Considerations

This project consists of renovating the existing building on our own property.
The design shall allow for potential growth and integrate expansion as our needs and resources grow.

  1. All space must be designed for multiple uses to attain the least cost and greatest energy efficiency.
  2. Space is needed for four simultaneous meetings on weeknights. These meetings must not interfere with each other.
  3. The youth groups (YRUU) may meet twice during the week, requiring adequate space and sound abatement for their activities.
