Maltby Property Update
Fall is here and the grounds of the Maltby property residence is beautiful today as the sun is shining. The garden is also following the season, moving into a dormant state except for a few winter crops that have been planted. The deer are still visiting the property regularly.
 
Many people have been asking: “When will we have a Center?” Here is an update on the timeline.
 
We are completing our due diligence on all that is required for a successful conditional use permit (CUP) application. That permit request will be filed with Snohomish county as soon as we have approved plans for a hall. That due diligence review includes our planning for the road, septic, environment, fire and other items required by the county codes. We anticipate completing the engineering and other architectural reviews by end of year. The timeline, once we submit the request for our conditional use permit, is in the range of 8-9 months. Once we are cleared to use the property in the manner consistent with MA Center properties, we will begin the process of building out the rest of the property.
 
In the meantime, the residence will be getting some much-needed face lifting once the construction permitting process is cleared. The residence was built a while back and needs some updating on electric, insulation, ducting, some structural shoring up and other punch-list items. This process is separate from the CUP. As we are using the property within its current residential zoning, we only need the usual construction permits.

PNW Winter Retreat in OREGON!
February 18 - 20, 2017
Winter Retreat
Mark your calendar to spend President's Day weekend in Oregon.
 
The Oregon Satsang is hosting the PNW Winter Retreat for the first time, next year. Camp Fire's Camp Namanu is just 40 minutes from downtown Portland on 550 secluded, wooded acres beside the Sandy River, just south of the Columbia River Gorge. It's a real camp, like you might remember from your childhood. The buildings are classic 1930s, built to last, with beautiful stone fireplaces! Hiking trails abound and the Sandy River is just footsteps from your heated cabin. It will be economically priced so you can bring your family and friends.
 
So, mark your calendar for February 18 to 20, 2017.

Neskowin Satsang
We are a small Satsang on the Oregon coast in Neskowin. Neskowin is halfway between Lincoln City and Pacific City. It's lovely and very peaceful out here! We are enjoying gathering one Saturday afternoon each month for chanting and meditation, singing bhajans and sharing a meal.
 
All are welcome! If you are interested in joining us, please call me for detailed directions, etc. Also, I'd be happy to hear any questions or suggestions or if you know of other people who might like to be invited.
 
For November, we will be meeting on Saturday the 19th, from 3:00 to 6:00pm.
Blessings,
