Empire Chapter Members –
The old adage of April showers bringing May flowers may actually be true this year. We’ve been planting many “seeds” this month hoping that they will bring brighter days. We’re looking forward to what promises to be an interesting May. A month that brings us new hope that our world will be getting back to normal, or whatever we’ll be calling it.
The “seeds” I reference above are actually ideas we’ve been advancing to get construction back to being 100% essential. We’ve been working closely with our elected officials and the Governor’s office to advance a plan that will re-open construction soon. We’ve been focused on two key pieces:
a commitment to safety and controlling density by phasing in stalled projects in measured steps.
I’m pleased to say that yesterday, at his daily press briefing, the Governor took a step in our direction. He announced a two phase approach, re-opening plan, that would start with construction and manufacturing with time to measure any potential spread of COVID-19. If all goes well, step two would commence with more measuring for the virus.
