Master Planning Process (2023)

At the start of 2020, we intended to revisit and refresh our Master Plan (see below).  Unfortunately, the COVID Pandemic tossed us into a number of different directions.  Emergency repairs to our sewer lines, keeping the facility open for tenants so they could continue working despite public health restrictions, and adjusting to world of online meetings.

Three years later, we are getting back to our original intention.  We are also fortunate to have a group of contributors that would like to see more improvements to our Community Hall, so stay tuned as we revive our Master Planning efforts, identify facility improvements and continue to build community as we make the building a model of sustainability in design and practice.

Master Planning Process (2015- 2016)

After 5 years of tenants and community members using the building and hundreds of meetings, events and celebrations in our community spaces, we began a Master Plan Process  to determine how Third Street can be an even more vibrant community center. Our Master Planning process will explore a number of key questions, including:

  • What improvements would tenants and users like to see?
  • How can we improve the connectivity between the front, the Gym/Event space, and the South Lawn?
  • What are the next levels of efficiency & sustainability improvements for Third Street?

Tenants discuss improvements

and share their suggestions with each other

After collecting a ream of ideas from tenants, we are implementing the ideas we can do now and exploring funding options for larger capital and programmatic improvements that have significant value to Third Street as the tenants and community members use the facility.

  • More plants and art photos in the building
  • Food/Cafe
  • Improved parking
  • Upgrade bathrooms
  • Re-imagine the gym space as a community space for music, dance, children’s theater, presentations and conferences
