Our goal is to minimize impacts to our services, customers and staff. Customers visiting the Development Center Lobby may experience construction noise and dust, and see areas covered with plastic sheeting.
Staff will temporarily relocate to different areas of the Annex throughout the work.
By relocating all staff around the Development Center, we expect to see improved collaboration between staff and our customers. Upgrades to the space will create an improved environment for our customers and staff.
