Gathering Places Project

From the Pomegranate Center

Does your neighborhood need more public space? A place for the entire community where people can meet, linger, chat and celebrate? Have you ever thought about creating a gathering place in your neighborhood? Now may be your chance.

Pomegranate Center, a nonprofit community design and development organization, and Tully’s Coffee are joining forces to ignite a movement to create handcrafted, community gathering places.

Starting in the greater Seattle area, we are embarking on an RFP (Request for Proposal) process to find communities in greatest need of public gathering spaces, from outdoor gardens, natural and urban parks, amphitheaters, shelters and street improvements to retrofitting indoor community centers, libraries and more.

Three selected communities will receive a service and materials grant to plan, design and build a neighborhood gathering place in 2011.

Start thinking about how you can make your neighborhood more livable, sustainable and socially engaged. And don’t wait – proposals are due April 15, 2011.

Learn more and get the RFP and application.
