Its Really Getting Interesting at Quixote Village Site!

QUIXOTE VILLAGE IS TAKING SHAPE WITH HELP FROM LEGISLATORS!

Last week at the construction site of Quixote Village, on Mottman Road in SW Olympia, major milestones were passed, and a couple of friendly legislators dropped in to see what is going on.

State Representative Timm Ormsby (D – Spokane) showed up just in time to help Construct Inc. pour the slab for the 2,723 square foot community building that will house kitchen and dining facilities, showers and laundry, and meeting and office space.  Rep Ormsby has been a long and vigorous supporter of our efforts, and, fortunately, he used to be a cement finisher, so he knew what he was doing.

Friday, new Washington Congressman Denny Heck (D- 10th District), took time off after his town hall meeting at nearby South Puget Sound Community College to visit the site and be briefed on the Village by Panza Board member Jill Severn.  By then the footprints for the 30 small cottages that will house residents had been marked off, and the crew was preparing to set the footings that will support the foundation beams.
