Changes and Reminders Regarding Parking

From Andy Gilmour with Kite Realty Group:
Good morning Eddy Street Commons,

I am reaching out to everyone today with notice that the recently changed parking area next to Kilwin’s, which was changed last year to 2-hour parking as opposed to no parking – will now become 45-minute parking. It is apparent that tenant employees are abusing the 2-hour system in order to utilize this parking the entire day. This parking is meant for quick grab and go and delivery; not long term parking. New signs will be installed in the coming days. Please be aware as Hamilton Towing has been instructed to keep a close eye on this area.

Other parking Notes:

1.      All tenants and their employees or residents are required to park inside the parking garage. Public street parking is noticeably full from 8:30am onward. This parking is intended for patrons of Eddy Street Commons.

2.      The above does not apply to those purchasing reserved parking under buildings A & C. Even a quick park in these reserved spaces can lead to towing.

3.       Within the parking garage, all tenants and their employees or residents are required to park on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the parking garage.

4.      Please notice, both the 2nd and 3rd floor of the parking garage contain reserved parking along the southern end for condominium owners, parking in these marked spaces will also lead to being towed.

Thank you everyone for your cooperation in these matters,
~ Andy

Holly Happ to transition to Executive Associate, University Enterprises and Events

I am excited to announce that Holly Happ will transition to Executive Associate, University Enterprises and Events.  In this capacity, Holly will  manage the office of the Vice President for University Enterprises and Events, including researching of strategic issues, calendar management, meeting preparation, and office organization. She will manage special projects that require a high level of independence and initiative in planning and execution. I am excited to continue working closely with Holly, as she has been a trusted colleague and partner to me since moving to the Development Associate role in March, 2018.
Since joining Notre Dame, Holly has had a tremendous impact on the Development team and University.  In her role as Development Associate, Holly led a variety of important projects, worked closely with benefactors, and collaborated on strategic endeavors for our team. Prior to this position, Holly served as Sr. Administrative Assistant for the Development team, working closely with Anne Griffith and Stu Fortener.
Holly’s impressive work ethic, grace, and embodiment of the University’s values have been evident in all she has accomplished at Notre Dame.  I am grateful for her partnership, and look forward to continuing our work together.  While I know she will be deeply missed on the Development team, know that her friendships, commitment to unlocking the grace of giving to advance Notre Dame’s mission, and belief in each of you, remain strong.
Please join me in congratulating Holly!
My best,

Alyssia Coates’ Next Adventure

It is with mixed emotions that I share news of Alyssia Coates’ new role at Brown University in Providence, RI. Alyssia will be joining Brown as the Director of Development for Academic Initiatives – Diversity and Inclusion. In this position, Alyssia will have the dual responsibility of serving as the Advancement liaison to the administrative and faculty leadership for the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity along with managing a portfolio of major gift prospects.

Alyssia has had a long career at Notre Dame, notably with the Trio Program, Pre-College Programs, and Enrollment Division. During her time in Development, Alyssia has been active with the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and has taught the Moreau Course. She was a founding member of the Hybrid Gifts, and always found a way to share her many gifts with her colleagues. Alyssia has been a mentor, coach, cheerleader and friend to many on our team, and beyond.

Alyssia’s last day in the office will be March 25. Please join me in wishing Alyssia and her family all the best as they embark on this new adventure. Thank you for your service to Notre Dame, Alyssia!

Kevin Deeth’s New opportunity

I’m often reminded by benefactors just how well you all represent Our Lady’s University in your interactions with their families. People have increasingly noticed the immense talent we have assembled within University Relations.
Consequently, one of our distinguished local alumni, Tracy Graham ’95, has recruited one of our very best to join his burgeoning firm.  Kevin Deeth will be joining one Graham Allen Partners as Director of Investor Relations. As a part of this Private Equity Fund, Kevin will handle the Capital Raising duties for Graham Allen’s Partners and its portfolio companies.. Kevin will begin his new role on Monday, Feb. 25th at the Graham Allen offices in downtown South Bend.
Kevin has not only been a prolific fundraiser, but has also been a trusted confidante, welcoming mentor, and true friend to many here. While we will miss Kevin in many ways, his legacy will be sustained as the many gifts he closed provide ongoing impact.
This is a wonderful opportunity for Kevin and his family. Personally, I’m so grateful to have had the pleasure to work closely with such a class act.
Please join me in wishing him continued success, prosperity and good health.
Godspeed Kevin,
Tim Willis

Update on ESC Water Pump Replacement

From Andy Gilmour: Kite Operations Manager:

The shutoff valves for the water bypass are not working and the service technicians for Kite will need to interrupt service temporarily in order to replace these shutoffs. This temporary disruption will take place tomorrow morning, February 18th, between 6am-9am, with the goal to have water supply back on to the building by 8am.

We appreciate your understanding during this process. Thank you.

Water Pump Install at ESC Monday, Feb 18th

Kite Realty Group will begin the installation of the building’s new water pump on Monday morning, February 18th at 7:30 a.m. They will enable a bypass for the water supply during this process so we should not notice any change in our current water pressure. They hope the project will be completed by the end of the week, after which we will see a significant improvement in our water pressure.
Thank you all for your cooperation during this time of low water pressure in the building.
