The Center for Sex Positive Culture has found a new home! We have signed a lease for 1514 NW 46th St, Seattle, WA 98107, located in Ballard. We will have a dedicated parking lot with 18 spaces and there is unrestricted, free street parking throughout the neighborhood. For those that use transit we will be a short distance from a bus stop along the routes of the 40 and D-line. We are very happy to have found a location that is so close to our old space and hopefully will remain convenient for our membership.
Moving in and Getting Started
We take possession of the building in December and are already working on the permit process. Due to the volume the city is experiencing and the upcoming holidays, this may take longer than usual. We will start construction as soon as legally possible. Some things like cleaning and painting the office can be done as soon as we move in, other tasks will be dependent on where we are in the permit process. Given what we know of the timing, we are aiming to begin hosting parties in our new space in Spring of 2017. We will share more specific dates as we know more. In the meantime, we will be able to host board meetings and FSPC Discussion/Support Group meetings.
What You Can Do to Help
While we do have funds to get this project underway, how much our community can contribute will make a difference in really taking this space to the next level. You can donate here or at any of the upcoming events. Whether you can give a little or a lot, we appreciate all who can contribute. Please keep an eye out for fundraisers and specific drives where we will fundraise for specific things for the new space. Some of these special projects we won’t be able to do without your help, so please donate to the things you really want to see in our new home.
If you are interested in volunteering to help with anything in the construction process please contcct firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the new building volunteer list. Please list out any special skills you have in construction, electrical, plumbing, or weight-lifting. We will still send out general requests for help on the CSPC volunteer email list, too. This is a big project. We will need all kinds of help, so even if you can’t lift things or swing a hammer, there are still lots of ways to join the team.
We want to thank all of you who participated in the Invest in Our Future efforts. Before we open for our first party we will be hosting our thank you event for all of our Investors. All of you will get to see and play in the space before anyone else. It’s not too late to qualify, you can still become a premium member or donate to become an investor. Volunteer hours for the construction project will also apply. Go to our I’m Invested Campaign for more details.
