On April 11, the DHARA Board hosted a capital projects informational meeting and open discussion on the planned renovation of the community house and bathrooms.

The purpose was to share a readout of our research and provide some initial recommendations — including proposed design plans, estimated costs, and financing options.  Members in attendance provided design and financing feedback and suggestions. Some of that feedback included:

  • Design a separate family bathroom (which allows us to put one less toilet in women’s restroom)
  • Designate space within the women’s bathroom for changing (bench, cubbies, etc)
  • Water spigot in bathrooms for easier cleaning

Based on the member feedback at that meeting, the architectural firm proposed this redesign.

For those who were unable to attend April 11 meeting, you can watch this video of the session.  If you have additional comments or suggestions, email DHARA or post your thoughts on the DHARA Facebook Page.

A follow-up meeting is planned for May 30, to vote on move forward with the capital project and authorizing the board to fund and finance this project.
