Mid-July is the target for two major milestones:
(1.) completion of all work except the frontage on Montgomery street
(2.) reopening entrances to the Research Building and Library
The utility lines on Montgomery Street are expected to be buried later in July.
The flagpoles in front of Everett EAD are scheduled to be moved to the courtyard near the end of September.
The courtyard is an outdoor commons area providing a view of the Library from Montgomery Street. It will help create solutions for a healthier community with green space and a conservation-conscious water feature.
When the landscape is complete, it will include 100 trees (big-tooth maple, Oklahoma redbud, honey locust, possum haw holly, live oak, Eve’s necklace, lace-bark elm and Drake elm) and drought-tolerant plants including abelia, boxwood, day lilies, red yucca, dwarf yaupon holly, honeysuckle, dwarf wax myrtle, roses, petunias, autumn sage and Mexican feather grass.
