An email was sent to residents recently announcing the re-paving of the Gathering Place Parking Lot. After concerns expressed by residents and discussion with the contractor, the schedule has been modified, with the activity divided according to the following schedule:
May 24-26: Asphalt repair will be carried out at various locations, with the parking lot partially open.
June 14-16: The contractor will sealcoat and stripe the lot in two stages (see aerial photo below). The Swimming Pool and Fearrington Cares sections of the lot will be treated on the first day. Sections at the Mail kiosk and in front of the Gathering Place will be treated on second day. The third day is reserved in case of rain.
The Swimming Pool and Fearrington Cares will be closed June 14. The Swim and Croquet Mail kiosk will be closed June 15. The Gathering Place has a perimeter sidewalk and will remain accessible both days.
The aerial photo shows which areas will be affected. The area outlined in red will be closed June 14, the area outlined in blue will be closed June 15.
All dates are weather permitting, so could slip by a day or two.
Lots would be open to cars the day after the sealcoating of that portion.
Half of the parking lot will always be open.
