Thanks to Nell Hergenrather for this...
The meeting went great! The board voted to move forward with more detailed installation costs for the Geofill (cork and coconut) and the PureFill (100% Cork) infills. The project is still on target for being sent off with no delay although, there was some grumbling about their ability to get the $’s all hammered out by the next meeting on March 25th- for irrigation plans etc.
The board didn’t go forward with the architect’s recommended product of another type of encapsulated kind of rubber infill - that there are no safety studies on. Football guys tried to say the organic products were “dusty” and toxic in their own right, but that didn’t fly. Our board was truly thoughtful and committed to our kids, it was awesome to see it all in action.
Thanks for your help with outreach, we had about 50 people in the room and my guys totaled about 30!!
