Design Charette Community Meeting tonight in Aberdeen

Residents can get a first look at what the Gateway Center could look like at a meeting tonight in Aberdeen.

A “Design Charette Community Meeting” is being held tonight at the Rotary Log Pavilion tonight from 6 to 8 pm and the public is invited to weigh in on possible designs for the project in Aberdeen.

Coates Design Architects will be on hand for the first of three public meetings to gather feedback from the community about the design of the proposed Gateway Center.

At the meeting, the architects will discuss what the building in Aberdeen could possibly look like.

Aberdeen Mayor Erik Larson told KXRO that the public is encouraged to bring their opinions to the table.

The Gateway Center is intended to serve as an “enterprise center” in Aberdeen, as well as a location for visitor and tourism information.

Final tenants and full usage have not been determined.

“This project is nearly a decade in the making,” explained Vickie Raines, Grays Harbor County Commissioner. “Following an extensive feasibility study, it became clear that the time had come to invest in the Gateway Center.”

Follow up meetings are planned for December 1 and January 5 at the same time and location.

The January meeting will present final design plans.
