The City of Tukwila is exploring the development of a Teen & Senior Center, and they’re looking for community input on where to locate the new facility.
Throughout 2021, the project team has held more than 65 meetings, hearing the community’s ideas about the center’s value, desired functions, look & feel, and more. This includes their “Community Champions” who represent the many diverse communities in Tukwila.
The site has now been narrowed down to two potential locations.
“Your voice is important, please tell us what you think!”
The first phase of the project is to dialogue with as many members of the community as possible. In order to accomplish this, the City is working with a variety of organizational partners to co-design with individuals, groups and other stakeholders the types of spaces, programs and partnerships this new facility could host. To accomplish this, City staff are participating in small group meetings – largely virtually in the beginning due to the pandemic – to gain more insight from the community. Near the end of this phase of outreach, there will be one to two large community town hall meetings to give community members another opportunity to share input and perspectives around this project. Community members will also have the opportunity to provide their ideas over surveys and other methods in order to gain the widest community perspective possible.
