Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the Rainier Beach community to the review the final design of the new Rainier Beach Community Center and Pool. The meeting is Tuesday, June 15, 2010 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at the Rainier Beach Community Center, 8825 Rainier Ave. S.
At this meeting, Parks staff and A•R•C Architects will present the design for the project and answer community questions. Seattle artists Roy McMakin and Jeffry Mitchell will also be on hand to discuss how they are working to integrate art into the building. The project will create an exciting new gathering place that will foster health, recreation, and education for the Rainier Beach neighborhood. It is scheduled to be open by fall 2012.
“We are celebrating the completion of this design and want to thank the community for all their input,” said David Graves, Senior Planner. “We hope the community will continue to be stewards of this project and together we look forward to this new gathering space and activity center for Rainier Beach.”
During the design process Parks worked with the community to develop the best plan for the community. People gathered at four community meetings over the last year to offer input and community feedback as to which design options work best for Rainier Beach. Together the community, A•R•C Architects, and Parks have developed the design for this project.
