Dear Editor – Community Voices are Crucial

Dear Editor,

The future of 10858 Culver is up to you.

On September 24, City Council will hear proposals for the future of 10858 Culver Boulevard, and those who are in attendance will vote using a digital ballot. An expected 70 people will decide the future of the site. That means 7 people are 10% of the vote!

As you know, the Wende has spent months shaping a proposal for a Creative Community Center at that site with extensive community input.

The Wende Museum, the Mayme A. Clayton Library and Museum, and United States Artists Veterans Alliance – among others – are partnering to propose a mixed-use Creative Community Center that would offer to the community, free of charge:

– after-school programs

– community gathering space

– below-market or free artist-in-residency for veterans

– readings and performances

– pop-up exhibitions

– demonstration garden

– supportive services for families who are homeless or food-insecure

– complementary services to increase the impact of affordable housing

Cultural and educational programming, social services, and affordable housing can – and should – coexist. At the Creative Community Center, multiple community organizations would partner to offer an array of FREE programs and services to our entire community. The proposal is already fully funded and shaped by community input.

Your voice can have a huge impact. Don’t miss this vote.

Will you join us on September 24 to help decide the future of 10858 Culver?

Here are the details:

Senior Center
4095 Overland Avenue
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
6-9:30 p.m.

See you there,
Justin Jampol
