If we had a community center for the tri-town area, what would it look like?


Do you want a place to take classes, or hang out after school?
Would you meet up with friends or plan game nights?

Since we don’t have a physical community center at the moment;how might to connect and improve the spaces and resources we do have?

Join us this spring as we explore how we might create a “community center without walls” and improve social and community opportunities for our three towns.

 

 

 

WHAT’S HAPPENING

In the winter and spring of 2018, a group of local leaders will explore these questions with the Braintree, Brookfield and Randolph communities. We’ll be reaching out to many different groups and individuals to learn: 

  • What activities, community spaces and resources people already use in our area
  • What would help people use and enjoy existing activities and resources more
  • What activities or resources aren’t offered yet
We’ll then look at creative ways that the three towns can better use existing spaces, improve access to programs and participation, or create new programs and opportunities without building a physical community center. By summer, we’ll release a report and recommendations to the community.

WHO WE ARE

Four area community leaders came together to apply for a grant and launch this conversation:

  • Mel Adams,
    former Randolph Town Manager
                   
  • Haidi Arias
    Randolph Recreation Director
                   
  • Julie Iffland
    Executive Director of the Randolph Area Community Development Corporation
                   
  • Tony Keller
    community member

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other interested community members are now coming together to form a Steering Committee. The group will meet this spring to guide the process of reaching out to the community and creating recommendations. Anyone interested is invited to join the group.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to a municipal planning grant, the group is working with Community Workshop (Website) to facilitate this process and develop community engagement strategies.
