The City had been working on getting an exception to the Building Code since early March, only possible by an act of the General Assembly, for the project to move forward.

Senator Trudy Wade and Representative Jon Hardister supported the value of the project and were the main proponents of the legislation in the House and Senate. The City also recognizes Senator Phil Berger as part of the bill’s success.
