Boone Beginnings project reaches bid stage, ground breaking set Aug. 30

Boone Beginnings Early Childhood and Family Development Center has reached the point of letting bids.
Any interested subcontractor is welcome to contact one of the general contractors. All bids are due from the general contractors by Thursday, Aug. 13, at 2 p.m.
The Boone Beginnings’ board of directors will be working with the architect, RDG, to review the bids. Next, the group will select a general contractor. Once the contract is awarded and signed, there will be a 12-month construction timeline.
The plan is to get the process completed by September 2021 to begin serving families. Construction can begin as soon as possible.
So far, a total of $3.8 million has been raised, but the fundraising efforts are ongoing, and donations are still needed.
