PROJECT BACKGROUND MATERIALS
The SCRD is working with the community to design a replacement of the Coopers Green Community Hall. In 2017, a community Task Force was recruited and Principle Architecture was hired as a design partner. The Task Force worked with Principle Architecture and SCRD staff to develop a preliminary design for the hall using community input for design priorities.
