We have started our work on Phase Two of the Avalon Carver Community Center project!  Phase One included a lot of research and data gathering and now we are starting the collaboration/research and design!  The OACLA team and our amazing volunteers will be working with the community to fully understand the many needs and opportunities of this extremely active and historic community center, while re-imagining what this space can be and how it can best serve the local community.  Below is our first interview with some of the community leaders, an inspiring exchange that will be extremely helpful in informing the final programming and design!
