Bench Nearing Installation!

Hello Two Plum Bench Backers!

I wanted to let you know that the bench for Two Plum Park is nearing installation!

I received a note from the Parks Department today that:

"We have folks doing locates for underground utilities etc this week. Then they hope to excavate and pour the concrete pad by the end of the week. Then ... there is a waiting period of about a week while the concrete cures. At that point the bench and plaque can be installed."

Thanks to Barrett Anderson for keeping me in the loop!

There is rain in the forecast for tomorrow and we've had a few showers lately, so we'll see how the weather treats us, but we are getting closer!

I'll post another update once the bench is installed and we've been able to set a date for an Installation Celebration!

Thanks again for all your support!

Emily

      Hi Mim!
      The bench is not yet installed, but Parks has fenced off the bench location in preparation for excavation and pouring the concrete pad. I don't have any details, but I wouldn't be surprised if all the rain we've had has affected their timeline.

      Hey -- was the bench finally installed? I haven't walked by there lately, but it is now october... did Portland Parks ever do what they promised?
