Collaboration with the community was key to making this project a reality. Through extensive community outreach efforts conducted for the Station District housing project and Transit Zoning Code, the need for a community center in the Lacy Neighborhood was identified as a top priority.
With Garfield Elementary School being truly the heart of the neighborhood, an ideal alliance was formed.

Elected officials from the city and school district will hold shovels at the construction site to symbolize the beginning of the groundbreaking. Interviews will be available prior and immediately following the ceremony.
