New Lubber Run Community Center - Community Work Session #2

Wednesday, March 22 or Saturday, March 25 


Nearly 200 kids, teens, adults and senior adults kicked off the new Lubber Run Community Center design work session in February. Come see what we learned and help us move forward with the building design.  We need everyone’s input!

“Big Idea” design schemes, developed from community feedback, will be presented on Wednesday, March 22, 6:30 – 9 p.m.  or Saturday, March 25, 1 – 3:30 p.m. at Barrett Elementary School.  We need everyone’s participation from start to end of the work sessions to hone in on the best possible options. Together, we’ll share what we like and don’t like about various  schemes, and chart a path forward for the new Lubber Run Community Center.

Come to either Wednesday, March 22 or Saturday, March 25 to participate in the design work session. The sessions are the same except we’ll provide free kid’s activities/child care at Saturday’s session.  Coming on Saturday and need free childcare? Please RSVP for free childcare here.

Want to help out at the design session?  Volunteers are needed to assist the architects with group activities and reporting out big ideas.  We’re seeking 8 volunteers for each session.  If interested in volunteering, please sign-up.

Since the kick-off, you may have noticed some additional activity in the area of the Lubber Run Community Center related to the project:  

  • Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. has been hired to do an inventory of all trees. The inventory will guide the design process and reduce its impact on healthy trees.
  • Toole Design Group is conducting a traffic volume study to determine the number, movements, and classifications of roadway vehicles along the George Mason Drive and Park Drive intersection. Data collected will be used to help identify critical flow time periods, determine the influence of large vehicles and pedestrians on vehicular traffic flow, and document traffic volume trends. The study will be used to further inform community center parking needs and streetscape design.
