MAT-SU—Construction of an addition for the Dorothy Swanda Jones Borough building in Palmer has begun. Entrance to the building has changed. For the next four months, meetings for Assembly, Planning Commission, and Platting Board will be moved to the School District Administration building.
The addition will create a larger public meeting space and new work space for employees.
The new main entrance to the building will be at the back (west) of the building. An access that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act will be through the IT entrance. Two parking lots in front of IT will be for handicapped parking.
Most board and commission meetings will be moved to the School District Administration building. For a complete list visit the calendar on the Borough website or look for the Notice of Public meetings on the Borough page in the Frontiersman.
Plywood was recently placed over windows facing the court yard as a protective measure for staff from the heavy equipment. Once the addition is framed in, the windows can be removed and reinstalled.
See the parking layout, map of the construction area, and a map to the School District building for meetings.
