We are currently facilitating a community engagement process for the duration of the Masterplan engagement process for Mander Recreation Center. This process will lay the groundwork for Studio Zewde to create and revise a proposal for the Center’s redesign.
The goal of this engagement process is to gather real input from Strawberry Mansion residents and engage them in the design process. As part of this engagement process, we are continuing to build and foster community relationships established over the past year while working at Hatfield House, while simultaneously building on those relationships and widening the outreach to include members of the community not yet reached.
We are working in coordination with Fairmount Park Conservancy (FPC), Strawberry Mansion Community Development Corporation (SMCDC), and the Neighborhood Action Center (NAC), as well as the East Park Coalition, to reach out to community members for participation in the events.
Our first event was on October 20th! Over 80 neighbors participated in an initial redesign brainstorm process. The second event is coming up on December 3rd, where neighbors will give feedback on some design schemes.
