Dear Tribal Community,
It is my pleasure to announce that the Government Center construction will be in full swing starting this week.
Widening of the existing entrance and exit at the front of the property along Great Neck Road South started on Monday (9-24-12) and Tuesday (9-25-12). Clearing behind the existing building began today, Tuesday (9-25-12). During construction I ask for your patience and cooperation, particularly when accessing the property.
For safety reasons, Tribal access will be limited to the health services modular area via the existing North access (existing Exit). The access will be widened, allowing for both entrance and exit to the health services modulars.
The Executive and Judicial trailers will be relocated adjacent to the health service modulars. Access to these trailers will also be via the newly widened North access as well. There will be a perimeter fence around this area for safety, separating the health services area from the construction site. The existing South entrance to the site will be blocked off and a new construction only entrance and exit will be cut in a little further south from the existing. Signage will be placed at these access points for clarification.
All preparation and construction will be conducted with an eye toward the least amount of disruption to the Tribal functions that continue on the property as well as with the utmost respect to our natural resources.
This a very exciting time for our Tribe and we appreciate your cooperation.
