Since the closing, the property has already gone through a major transformation. Landscaping, pressure washing, interior clean-up, overall repairs and modifications ...
  The entire campus is really taking shape and almost ready for us to move in. We now just wait for the city to approve our 'Certificate of Occupancy'.

Plans were submitted today into the city to prove that building Two (Dorm), Three (Main Building and temporary shul) and Four (Retreat) meet life safety codes and should be approved shortly for use. Phase 1 of the plans also included the construction of a fire lane, bringing up the parking lot to code and a lighting scheme to
increase the outdoor lighting for safety.

As each approval was announced, the room burst out in great applause. The largest cheers were sounded after the VP of neighboring Nur Islam, Mr Alan Baksh, took the podium to describe the special friendship the mosque has enjoyed with Chabad SWB for over 25 years, and expressed their unconditional support and blessings for Chabad's purchase and all of the plans for the new campus. Throughout the presentation, as our plans were introduced and discussed, there was tremendous energy, optimism and support by all .. Cooper City's Staff, P & Z Board and Commissioners and the large audience of Chabad friends and supporters.

Lots of exciting developments to share
We've been confirmed for the next two commission meetings following this Monday's Planning and Zoning.
1. Tuesday, December 3 at 6pm
2. Tuesday, December 17 at 6pm
Again, whoever is available, our attorneys say it's critical we have as many people as possible there in support.
If all goes as expected, we should receive our rezoning on the 17th and be able to close between then and the end of the year.
We also received a great response today from the seller. Seeing how close we are to the finish line, how much we are spending on all the requirements and how hard our team is working to get this done, they agreed today to give us a much needed extension till after, and they waived about $30,000 in fees that they were scheduled to receive till then. Amazing because last week week they said no.
The mosque next door is giving us a recommendation letter and hope to send a representative to lend support.
Allan has finished preparing our required financials report and we are submitting them to several financial institutions who have expressed willingness to do the loan.
Our Architect, Engineers and Attorneys have been working tireless to get us to this point. For all who come to the meetings you will realize how much has been done behind the scenes to make this happen.
Now all we need is ... Hashem's help and money ...
More updates to follow!
