As you know, we are going to use the future home of Deutsches Haus at 1700 Moss Street (near the corner of Esplanade Ave. and Moss St.) to raise money for the new Haus.
However, we still have several things to do at the Moss St. property before we are ready to park cars for Jazzfest.
Here are some of the items on our “To-Do” list:
Put up orange fencing
Cut numerous conduits and protrusions on the slabs
Put up the banner and other signs
Mark and stake out hazards
Trim some tree branches
Designate ‘no parking’ areas on the slabs
Pick up rocks and debris
Mark some initial parking spaces
Treat residual ant piles
Clear an interior sidewalk
Install a 2×4 step down from the 3rd District slab
Secure the fence perimeter and prop the cemetery fence with 2x4s
Weather permitting; I will be working on site Thursday (9am-4pm), and Friday (9am-4pm). Check the volunteer tab on our website for more details.
Also, weather permitting; our final setup will be on Wednesday. April 24th. Again, I will post this under the volunteer tab on our website.
Parking cars at our Moss Street location is a revenue-producing venture for the new Haus; HOWEVER, at the moment, it looks like we will not be able to open the gates everyday due to the lack of volunteers.
