Later this month, the Studio will be doing a weekend charrette in the town of Orange, New Jersey. The town has been very proactive in overhauling its old organization and infrastructure to make a more cohesive and walkable community. Near their downtown core, there is a large vacant church property that the city wants to reuse for the communities benefit. They are holding a hearing for community input as well as working with organizations like HANDS, Inc and The New School for possible proposals.
Join us for a brief tour of First Presbyterian Church (424 Main Street, Orange, NJ) at noon followed by a design workshop at the YWCA (395 Main Street) from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
Community input is encouraged to develop ideas for re-purposing the vacant church.
Also, don’t forget to fill out our survey about Orange at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/238LRJ2 .
We look forward to seeing you and hearing your ideas! Thank you.
