Nathan Bishop Timetable and Milestones

 

We are grateful to Councilman Cliff Wood for providing the timetable for progress on Nathan Bishop, below. Cliff has done a great job of facilitating communication among the City, School Department and the community. We’re encouraged about the likelihood of being able to keep to the timetable by the hard work and openness we’ve seen on the part of City and PPSD officials who have been involved.  It’s fair to say, though, that this schedule is very tight- much tighter than the schedule we were looking at last spring. Therefore, it will be necessary to do everything possible to make sure that the milestones are met according to schedule.
