We’ve pulled our building permit!
Construction needs to start before the rains come, as the roof gets removed first in order to install the seismic strengthening. Construction is estimated to take a year.
Our goal is to raise the remaining funds for construction, sign an updated lease with the City and BREAK GROUND!
The clock is ticking… Can you help us meet that goal? Make another gift? Host a house party with your friends? Introduce us to potential donors?
AND, it’s time to flesh out our exhibits so they can be ready when we open. We’re actively collecting stories so that we can create a true community museum.
