A New Eastside Community Center?
Metro Parks Tacoma and the Eastside Neighborhood Advisory Council invite you to a public open house to review the feasibility of building a new state-of-the-art community center on Tacoma's Eastside.
Eastside groups have been working towards a facitlity for a while now, and this spring the City of Tacoma, Metro Parks, Tacoma Housing Authority, and Tacoma School District partnered to fund a feasibility study to answer questions about what it would take to sustain a facility, potential funding strategies, what groups might use a community center, where a faciltiy might be located, and what the community wants in terms of programming.
The center would be for all ages, but in discussions so far a major focus has been on the benefits for Eastside youth. Locations that have come up as potential sites include First Creek and Gault middle schools, and Boze Elementary.
The open house is scheduled for Wednesday, October 2 at the Stewart Heights Pool.
The STAR Center in south Tacoma has celebrated its first anniversary; is it time now for a new Eastside community center?
