  • Property Care Update—Restroom Issues


    Published: Nov. 10, 2022

    Many of you may have noticed that the 1040 lower-level women’s restroom sinks (i.e., restroom adjacent to the Butler’s Pantry and restroom in the Bridal Suite) are out of order. This is unfortunate for many reasons, particularly at with Snoopy rehearsals and performances and other events/meetings going on, we are experiencing these types of issues more frequently as our buildings age.

    This specific plumbing is a significant one and is going to require the digging into the floor to access the pipes. Contractors will be here at the end of the month (at the earliest) to address the issue. In the meantime, we are “converting” the men’s room in the sub-narthex to a women’s restroom. We ask that men and boys use the men’s restroom next to the Maintenance Shop.

    Thank you for your patience, understanding, and cooperation.
