The first meeting on the 10,000 square foot project took place in July with NBBJ Architects. At that time, residents voiced concerns about knocking down too many trees in the currently heavily forested lot and drainage concerns into the comparatively low-lying area.

NBBJ asked for feedback on orientation of the building, lighting design and features of a youth space. They said their goal was to include enough windows to allow ample natural light in.

In addition to the building, architects plan a parking lot for 40 vehicles.

Construction is not expected to being until the third quarter of 2014 and will take at least a year to build, according to NBBJ.
