The board members are all determined to start the construction Insha Allah this year. We submitted the plan to the city, but it came back to us for 2 modifications.
1. They are mandating a much stronger ceiling for more safety.
2. Safer glass in the windows.
Even though we are intent on starting the construction this year, we are still about $400 – $500K short of the total funds needed. Our community has been very generous all these years. May Allah reward you and bless you in this life and in the hereafter, Ameen.
