It seems that the organizational stages are taking a LONG time. I have decided to proceed with the small shop building in my backyard that started the entire group space concept for me. I will draw the building, apply for the variance and begin building next spring unless there is some progress made on the makerspace front.
While I would have been comfortable loaning my tools and equipment to the 'space, I am an old fart who has most of the toys that I want. The new shop will be sized for my use. I don't have the ability to build it big enough to be a makerspace. I would have been fun...
