Maintainence projects will begin at the Myer Fitness Center on November 7. Projects to be worked on include storm/drainage water management and relocation of underground cables for parking lot lights. We are projecting work to last two weeks. Some parking spaces will be affected during this time, thereby reducing the number of available parking spaces at the fitness center.
