First Presbyterian Church of Edgewood | The Community Church | 120 East Swissvale Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15218 | 412-241-4613
SUMMARY: A concern was brought to the Session that the heating system poses a significant risk. The pipes running through the walls are very old and fragile. A simple leak could turn into a repair costing tens of thousands of dollars to repair. An investigation revealed that installing an alternate heating and a/c system could result in a significant savings but to maximize it would require some structural changes to the business side of the building. That lead to the discussion on installing a lift to make the main floor more accessible. That consideration led to the need to make the bathrooms more accessible and less like dungeons. That consideration resulted in redesigning the main floor of the Church.
ISSUE: Should we affirm the resolution to proceed with the building renovations.
