Investing in a Feasibility Study

The Feasibility Study is the pre-design phase of new and/or expanded facilities. It is well worth the investment to ensure the study is completed thoroughly and comprehensively, with space and funding recommendations that will fully meet the needs of the community, now and into the future.
