Here are the two big takeaways in this week’s construction update:

  1. In the next few weeks, Bay Cities will be forming and pouring concrete paving, curb and gutter on the entrance/driveway into Parish Café, Sonoma Cider, Mill Street Antiques, The Elephant in the Room, and Illuminate Spa. Entrance to the parking will be tight, but entry will be maintained.
  2. Also in the next few weeks, Bay Cities will be forming and pouring the driveway on East Mill that’s used by Pacific Union Real Estate. Cars may still use the driveway, as Bay Cities will do this work a half at a time.
