“I want to express our gratitude to you and your organization for the successful completion of the work at the World’s Fair Park and the related projects. Although the Park is the most obvious component of the project, the other projects including the Clinch Bridge Renovation, the Relocation of the 48″ Sewer, and the 11th Street Road Improvements were equally complex and required a dedicated management team to deliver the projects on time and within budget. Your hard work in making sure the contractors delivered a quality project, in addition to budget and time constraints, has paid off, as is evidenced by the success of the Park as a public venue.”
