Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Completion of this project will allow the Evansville Arts Coalition to continue to provide access to Evansville and surrounding communities for art, music and educational events. Our programs are varied: children's art, quilts, fish decoys, photography, and pictures of earth from space. Our music events range from a high school jazz group, to professional touring musicians, to folk music, to youth singer/song writers. This project will be completed when the building is again protected from weather. See attached bidding criteria for additional information. We will establish a project plan with the masonry repair company, establishing milestones, a process for approval of work, and a payment schedule based on accomplishment of those milestones.

Measurable Outcome(s)

No evaluation ''tools'' were used due to the type of project. I was satisfied with the work done and the progress of the project which was completed in less than 1 week.
