Below is more information and a photo gallery of pics of the improvements made to the entryway and porch of the Center which started in August and wrapped up late in 2015.

Construction began Monday (Aug. 10) on our new entryway!  Sorry for not forewarning everyone.  The entrance will be safer to access for our customers, particularly those with mobility challenges.  There’ll be new railings and a completely new staircase off to the west side of the entrance rather than off the front as it has been.  This will allow us to display bikes outside without them obstructing access to the shop and the ramp leading up to the entrance.  We’re also getting a new electric-assist door unit to make it easier for our customers to get inside when their hands are full, etc.

Here is a slideshow of the construction, installation and finished new porch and entry way with electric assist door opener including the renovation of the deck:
