New facility vs Buying the existing BAPS facility

Post date: Dec 5, 2009 2:12:01 AM

Dear Members,

In order for us to compare the cost, area, usage, expansion and other variables, between constructing a new facility vs buying the existing BAPS facility, we have attached three documents for your viewing.

After much deliberation in the past two months and 31st October meeting with Dr. Vinay Jain, the Fund Raising Committee, Temple Construction Committee and the Board members, have arrived at the opinion that given our financial situation and keeping the future needs of the society in mind, the best thing for the society is to proceed to acquire the BAPS facility.

Should you have any questions pertaining to the documents, please email We would like to encourage all members to go through the documents and please email your questions as soon as possible. We will try to address your question immediately as well as post the questions in the FAQ section on our website ( Rest assure only the Questions and Answers will be posted on the website. No other personal information shall be shared. This would help on the day of the town hall meeting, so that we can objectively make a decision for the best of our society and do orderly voting for the facility.

The documents are:

1) Garland_Center_2009.doc

2) BAPS_Facility_Information_2009.doc


Again, we would like to request all the members to please go through the documents and we encourage all members to email your questions as soon as possible. Therefore the voting discussion, update in the TOWN HALL meeting can go smoothly.

Thank you,

JSNT Board
