Gathering Places Project looking for communities in need of public spaces

March 17th, 2011 · Comments

The Issaquah-based non-profit Pomegranate Center has joined with Tully’s Coffee to help create public gathering places in communities that most need them.

Does your neighborhood need more public space? A place for the entire community where people can meet, linger, chat and celebrate? Have you ever thought about creating a gathering place in your neighborhood? Now may be your chance!

Starting in the greater Seattle area, we are embarking on an RFP (Request for Proposal) process to find communities in greatest need of public gathering spaces, from outdoor gardens, natural and urban parks, amphitheaters, shelters and street improvements to retrofitting indoor community centers, libraries and more.

Three selected communities will receive a service and materials grant to plan, design and build a neighborhood gathering place in 2011.

Start thinking about how you can make your neighborhood more livable, sustainable and socially engaged.

Proposals for the Gathering Places Project are due April 15.
