This monthly newsletter is part of Enloe Medical Center’s commitment to keep you informed
about significant construction activity for our expansion project. Work for the month includes:

•   New view for West 6th Avenue at Arcadian: The Enloe building at 249 W. 6th Ave., at
    Arcadian, was removed Aug. 22, to make way for the house at 1660 Magnolia. This
    craftsman house was tentatively scheduled for relocation the week of August 28. The move
    should be a quiet process and may block traffic temporarily. The house will be positioned
    on blocks, and a new foundation will be constructed. Then an approximately six-week
    project will begin with connecting utilities, carpentry, painting and landscaping, including
    planting the native Red Bud tree, currently at 1660 Magnolia. The house will “book end”
    the future park with the Arcadian House, at W. 5th Avenue and Arcadian.

•   Parking structure façade gets go-ahead: The Architectural Review Board on August 23
    approved the façade of the parking structure with modifications. This was the second time
    the design was in front of the ARB. At the first meeting, in July, our neighbors requested
    changes, so we met in August to hear the requests, and based on feedback, we amended
    the plans. The façade was the last piece of the parking structure awaiting approval. We
    hope to finalize the construction documents in October and submit them to the city to
    request a building permit. In the meantime, pending city permit, we will clear the buildings
    at 120 W. 6th Ave. and 140 W. 6th Ave., which sit on the lot of the future parking structure.

•   Utility work around hospital may begin this month: In September we expect to begin
    an approximately two-month process of relocating overhead utilities underground. This will
    allow for construction of our new tower and eliminate overhead utility poles from the
    future park. The map on the reverse shows locations of this activity, which will include
    trenching, placing utilities underground, and removing utility poles and overhead cables.
    Trenched areas will be backfilled as work progresses and before new areas are trenched.
    Traffic will be kept open, but street parking will be temporarily limited.

•   Work underway on temporary employee parking lots: Two lots at Chico Nut are being
    prepared for temporary, off-site parking for Enloe employees. These lots, on Esplanade
    between East 10th and 11th Avenues, and Oleander between East 9th and 10th Avenues, will
    be activated when Enloe employee lots around the hospital begin closing to facilitate
    construction. Construction at Chico Nut includes leveling, grading, compacting, and adding
    bumper blocks, stripes and two shuttle-stop structures.

•   Update on sterilizer-compactor: The work behind Enloe’s Business Services building, at
    West 5th Avenue and Magnolia, is progressing. We expect to finish in September.

weather and permits. Call Project Manager Carole Mickelson at 570-2231 with questions
