4/3/19 UPDATE: Progress continues at the Arcada and we are doing weekly follow-up inspections. The major work right now involves the electric service for the building. The City is currently doing work right behind the theater to make a service upgrade possible for the facility. We also continue to work on the exiting issues and Mr. Onesti has provided the exiting study as part of this effort. I don’t have a firm date for you on when all of the work will be completed.
