    Plans are moving forward for the activity facility at RHS. Currently the project is in the “design/draw” phase and is approximately 80% complete in regards to the items included in that particular phase. Currently, the drawings are being vetted and reviewed by all departments that will utilize the facility regularly. An internal committee has determined bid specifications for the project. Initial site work has begun, and construction of the project is on schedule to begin in the fall of 2017.
