Space Proposals

This is the preliminary proposal for Open Space. There are general project areas being proposed such as: a performance center, educational center, media production studio, arts and crafts studio, health and wellness center, garden and greenhouse, and housing and lodging.

3 ways to go about creating Open Space:

Option 1 – Create separate spaces that focus on one or multiple projects

Option 2 – Create a space on a smaller scale that can facilitate a modest mix of most of the projects

Option 3 – Go all the way and create a space that incorporates all of the projects in one state of the art facility

The site plan will be created based upon the needs and interests of all members and the collective purchasing power of the Open Space cooperative.

Also there may be other projects and proposals that can be added to the list. If you have an idea let us know and we will add it to the list so that we can all work together to accomplish our goals. Open Space is a way to facilitate community projects and provides a framework to build purchasing power by working as a cooperative.

Open Space Preliminary Budget Proposal:

This is the preliminary budget proposal for Open Space. These figures represent a basic estimate for the start up costs and monthly operating expenses for each area of the space. There is also a general estimate of the square footage required for each area of the space, and the occupant capacity.

The official budget for Open Space will be developed by all members in an open, transparent, and participatory process. Each area of the space will have a development team composed of members interested in that particular project. Development teams will work together to determine the essential startup costs, operating expenses, and space design for each area.

Based upon the needs, interests, and vote of all Open Space members we can cooperatively develop a budget that is optimal for success.

Total Startup Costs = $489,244

Total Monthly Operating Expenses: $22,990 – $33,840

Total sq/ft: 16,350 sq/ft – 28,500 sq/ft
