"The final portions of the terms of reference required by the Town of Banff are being completed at this time, and will be submitted soon. Following approval, the construction on the building will hopefully begin in the Spring of 2020, delayed one year from our initial estimate."

Sounds like things are moving along nicely. Congratulations, Mr. Miner!

So, does this mean the owners of Wright buildings that have issues that are beyond their means or abilities to correct themselves now have somone to turn to who will find them qualified professional guidance and financial assistance? This could be an enormous undertaking.
Hosanna! A patron?


Dan, I'd love to believe that the scenario as you describe it might actually be true - a patron with altruistic intentions and no hidden agendas. Of course, I also believed in Santa Claus until Mr Trump ruined that for me last Christmas ... Very Happy

Possibly my post was too subtle.
My second sentence should be read in an ominous tone.....speaking from my own experience, I note that even a relatively stable, move-in ready house with a lot of deferred maintenance can swallow $245K without so much as a belch. My question mark at the end of the post was quietly expressing incredulity.

Very well endowed foundations with large and strong fundraising networks would have difficulty making this sort of proposal. I wish them well.
