PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project is part of a capital campaign to make major renovations to the Parks-owned building that is currently home to the Cascade People's Center. The Center provides services and programs to the diverse Cascade community.

The building is adjacent to the Cascade P-Patch. It is also next to Cascade Playground, which was recently renovated through a Pro Parks Levy project and with contributions from local businesses.

Through a Department of Neighborhoods neighborhood matching fund grant, a plan has been developed for a Cascade Eco-Renovation Project. The project aims to retain the building's current functions while also demonstrating renewable technologies such as passive solar heating, photovoltaic panels, the harvest and re-use of rainwater, and greywater reclamation through biological filtration.

The community envisions the building's eco-renovation as part of the ongoing evolution of Cascade Park into a model for ecological urban land use.

COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION

The project was nominated for the second cycle of the Pro Parks Levy Opportunity Fund. Dozens of letters and testimonials were received in support of the project during the Pro Parks Levy Oversight Committee's selection process for the Opportunity Fund.
