Community invited to give input on new plaza

On Monday, December 10, at 6:30 p.m. El Centro de la Raza is hosting a community meeting about the public gathering spaces in the planned Plaza Roberto Maestas (PRM) development, to be built in El Centro’s south parking lot, just north of Beacon Hill Station.

Representatives of El Centro and Beacon Development group will present and discuss ideas for 10,000+ square feet plaza and the adjacent community center, including how the two spaces will work together on the site and with the surrounding community.

Monday’s meeting is the latest in a series of community meetings about the PRM development project. Community opinions and concerns stated at a meeting last June are viewable here.

The meeting is at El Centro de la Raza, 2524 16th Ave. S. There will be refreshments available, and translation will be offered. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to to confirm attendance for planning purposes.

This preliminary design shows a possible plaza in the PRM development project.

  1. When does construction start on any of these sites? Why does it take so long to get anything constructed on Beacon Hill?

  2. Hi Doug: I am the project manager working with El Centro. On the PRM project we are still working on assembling financing from a variety of public and private resources (35M budget overalll), and this takes time. In addition, it usually takes about a year to work through the DPD permitting and design process. In short, development is a lengthy process. We have also prioritized doing community outreach over the last six months, before starting Design Review. We hope to be back out in Jan/Feb to gather and present a new round of drawings.
