Planning a deck project soon?

Maple Grove to host deck seminars

The City of Maple Grove’s Building Department is hosting its annual free deck seminar. Two dates are planned for this spring. Residents should note they only need to attend one session.

The sessions are: Wednesday, May 8, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. or Saturday, May 11, from 8:30 to 11 a.m.

Each seminar will cover construction techniques, code requirements and related ordinance requirements. This course is designed to cover all basic information needed to design and construct a deck, and time will be allowed for a question/answer session as well.

Both seminars will be in the Emergency Operations Center at the Maple Grove Government Center, 12800 Arbor Lakes Parkway. The city would ask that if anyone plans to attend one of these seminars, they contact the Building Department to register and reserve a spot. The number to call is 763-494-6060.

So, if a deck is on a spring/summer “to do” list, make sure to come to one of these free, informative seminars.
