Have you noticed grading going on at the corner of Crossbow and Arrowcreek Parkway? Oh, yes, and the For Sale sign is down….
According to the application, the planned Connect Neighborhood Center is a 16,015 square foot neighborhood center designed as a destination to promote wellness for all ages. Connect will house mindful movement and functional fitness studios (for adults and children), personal coaching and co-working spaces, coffee/tea and nutritious takeaway meals, retail, training and demonstration facilities, and a meditation and community garden.
The proposed project was presented and unanimously approved at the regularly scheduled South Truckee Meadows/Washoe Valley Citizen Advisory Board (CAB) on June 11, 2020 (via ZOOM). The two parcels of land that will be the new Connect Center, Garden and parking lot are described in WSUP20-009w with details and photos about the center. Various Washoe County Board meetings have been cancelled due to COVID-19 so it does not appear to be completely approved yet. The report prepared for the cancelled July 8 board meeting was removed from the county website. The report was updated with new meeting date and posted for the July 24 meeting. The July 24 meeting minutes are not yet posted on the county website.
According to the application, Connect already offers Hunsberger students meditation and mindfulness services and plans to reach out to Sage Ridge and Marce Herz students in the future.
These conceptual drawings are in the application package. The South elevation is the Arrowcreek Parkway (back) view of the building. The North elevation is the front of the building. The concept blends nicely with the new Marce Herz Middle School.
