Construction at Coyote Point of a new animal shelter, to replace the existing facility constructed in the early 1950s, continues to progress smoothly. Interior drywall, painting, ceiling work, and electrical, plumbing, and fire systems have been completed. Exterior roof, skylight, and gutter installation is complete, in addition to emergency access pavement, exterior siding, and stucco at the outdoor kennels. Based on the latest schedule prepared by F & H Construction, the Phase 1 Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) is scheduled to be issued in March 2020. The final completion date for Phase 2 is scheduled for June 2020, depending upon winter weather conditions and other potential delays. Once completed, the new shelter will embrace current best practices for animal care services and provide limited community, clinic and administrative services.
