Neighborhood Center, Inc.

After implementing several aspects of a previous master plan by the Collaborative, the Neighborhood Center returned for advice on how to expand its growing arts programming and provide amenities for nearby residents. The Collaborative’s volunteers worked with the center to create a multi-phased plan to develop new daycare and multipurpose facilities, a cohesive campus, and a new sports pavilion and urban farm.
