FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Plaza Deck Renovation Groundbreaking

 

Please join President Sessoms and University officials on Thursday, August 5, 2010 @ 11:00am for a groundbreaking ceremony heralding the start of the renovation of the Plaza Deck area on the campus of the University of the District of Columbia.

This is one of the projects in the University' current capital project portfolio that will transform the heart of the campus from the bleak sea of colorless pavers into a vibrant and friendly gathering place.  The renovation of the Plaza Deck will create a new “greener” area with enhanced lighting and a new water fountain feature.  The new design will also feature an eco-friendly storm water management system to help reduce the runoff entering the city’s overburdened storm sewers.

Please contact Thomas E. Redmond, Director, State and Local Affairs at 202-274-5622 or tredmond@udc.edu for additional information or to RSVP.

We look forward to seeing you. Thank you.
