The firm of Harker and Hall Architecture Limited will be willing to construct these buildings pro bono providing they are granted two concessions: First, publicity and access rights, during public open hours, to show the project to potential clients in the future. The company also asks for a cornerstone bearing the name of the firm to be placed in the front of the buildings.

Governor Fionna Helston al-Amat and the Governor's Advisory Council,

The following is a status report on the construction of the observatory and botanical gardens in the land grant formerly owned by Ravensheart Academy. Plans for the botanical gardens have been drawn, but due to the recent harsh winter weather conditions it was necessary to place that project on hold. There has been a great deal of progress, however, on the construction of the observatory and classroom building.

The three level structure's exterior is completed. With the exception of the second floor, the interior has also been completed. The second floor is currently being outfitted with an industrial kitchen for culinary arts students. The flooring in the kitchen area has been especially constructed to support heavy appliances. This level will also house several classrooms. Some are being set up for arts such as sculpting, drawing, painting, dance, and music.

Roughly one/third of the basement level has been set aside for the pool. The pool has depths from two feet to fifteen feet to accommodate swimmers of all skill levels. Rest room and shower facilities are located in pool area. A salt water aquarium has been installed in the entrance wall. Alchemy and science laboratories have been set up in the basement rooms in order to allow the fullest protection to the other students and general populous from accidents. Walls in the labs have been carefully reinforced and built with fireproof materials. A wine cellar and wine making equipment are available. A recreation area fills the remaining space.

The ground floor is home to the media center and library to aid students in their research. Daycare facilities are available for students and faculty members. The cafe is set up as a point of sale for culinary students as well as learning restaurant management and gaining other job experience. An open area is set aside for student productions and musical entertainment.

The observatory/observation deck level features two full size domed observatories. The roof is fenced off with brick cornices that are both decorative and to help ensure the safety of those that wish to enjoy the view or participate in an open air class.

We expect to have the third floor finished by early June. This will also be the ideal time to be laying the brickwork for the front entrance ways and the rear patio area. Fountains have already been put in place in the rear of the building, but are not yet operational.

Some of the equipment was generously donated by local business owners.

Sincerely,

Rhiannon D. Harker

Governor Fionna Helston al-Amat and the Governor's Advisory Council,

This is to inform you that the observatory and lecture hall building has been completed. The stone walkways will be completed by 18 May 2013. We had hoped to have it completed in time for the GAC meeting on 13 May, but family circumstances have made that unlikely.

We were informed that Councilors DeMuer and Fenner, respectively, suggested memorial plaques in various areas and memorial stones in the walkways. A public announcement will be made to this effect. Stones can be carved or exchanged if names are added later.

The center will need a name. If anyone has suggestions or if the Council wishes to poll the citizens in some manner, we leave that in your hands.


Sincerely,

Rhiannon D. Harker

Governor Fionna Helston al-Amat and the Governor's Advisory Council,

This to inform you that the final touches are being placed for the botanical garden and conservatory building. You and your families are welcome to tour the observatory and botanical gardens before the opening and dedication which we hope to have scheduled for June.

The botanical garden has a large conservatory building with specimens from many places in the multiverse. The gardens are filled with various types of trees and shrubbery. Since this is meant to be an all ages attraction, there is a picnic grove with a small carousel for the children to enjoy. Another area of the garden has been set aside for outdoor events such as weddings and band concerts.


Sincerely,

Governor Rekah Silverblades and the Governor's Advisory Council.

This is to inform you that the Observatory Complex and Botanical Garden are now open for business. While we have yet to hold a grand opening ceremony, this is the ideal time for students to register for classes.

Jobs are available for maintenance crew, day care workers, librarians, computer technicians, cafe staff, gardeners, beekeepers, and instructor positions. Applications are available at the second floor reception desk during afternoon business hours between 1 P.M. and 6 P.M. or at the office of Harker and Hall's legal representative, R. E. MacLeod in Old Temple.

Sincerely,

Rhiannon D. Harker

(( OOC Note: Pending map coordinates are 1876:384 H which will place the Observatory and Garden right behind the Ravensheart Administration Building. I still have a few things to finish on this, but it's time to get this project active.))

Governor Rekah Silverblades and the Governor's Advisory Council,

Due to illness in the family that requires off world travel, the date for the grand opening of the Observatory and Botanical Garden is to be changed to 4 January 2014. We have no desire to cause any conflict with the plans for Winterfest, therefore, wish to schedule it for afterward. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely,

Rhiannon D. Harker
