OACLA believes in the value of community involvement throughout the planning and design process. Therefore we have started Phase Two of the project by conducting interviews with leaders of the community in order to get their input and make sure their vision for the community comes through in the design. Later in the phase, we will open up the conversation to include the community at large, an invaluable part of the process that we are really looking forward to. 


Throughout Phase One we worked in close collaboration with Jamico Elder, the Executive Director of ACCC, to discover as much as we could about the history of Avalon Carver and his vision of it's future. This included many inspiring conversations where we learned about the rich history of the Center and it's role in the community throughout the decades.  We also learned about Jay's dream for Avalon Carver as a central hub of support and inspiration for the community members.
