A new Community Hub takes shape
We are excited to share with you one of the current projects in our office – the Casino Road Community Hub.
The Casino Road neighborhood, located in South Everett (and not having anything to do with a casino), is one of the most densely and diversely populated area of Snohomish County. For years, the local community has been asking for a safe, shared community space where people can gather, build community, and access essential services and resources to support strong families. Connect Casino Road, a collaborative of local stakeholders, is seeking to meet this need by transforming an existing building complex into a Community Hub.
Convene’s role, initially begun while Convene founder Eric Higbee was Executive Director of Pomegranate Center, has been to help facilitate a community visioning process and then translate the community’s vision into vibrant community space. With collaborators Environmental Works spearheading the interior renovation, Convene has been working to design and detail a courtyard renovation focused around playful spaces and community gatherings.
We are in the midst of permitting and construction documentation, and are looking forward to the first phase of construction later this year.
