A CHANGE IS GOING TO COME -- Get invollved!
The Menkiti Group is revitalizing the old Singer Building and some other properties on Rhode Island Avenue. If you missed the community forum to discuss and talk about what you would like to see happening in our City, PLEASE checkout this video of the forum. There is some pretty good information here.
As proposed, Menkiti is planning to restore the three properties and to create a dozen residential units and 10,000 square feet of commercial space in the buildings. On tap is a 5,500-square-foot hardware store and 12 residential units at 3300 Rhode Island Ave., a 3,110-square-foot ReCreative Spaces arts incubator at 3308 Rhode Island Ave., and a 1,360-square-foot cafe by Englert at 3310 Rhode Island Ave.
Don't hesitate to contact the Menkiti Group should you have questions, concerns or suggestions. Working together we WILL make Mount Rainier a DESTINATION!
As a long-time resident of Mount Rainier and a homeowner, it is important to me that municipal government be inclusive of all of its residents. It is equally important that information be communicated through all possible channel so that residents can get involved. It is also important for residents to volunteer and serve on committees, commissions, boards and task forces. I truly believe that municipal government is the government closes to the people, and as such should be easily accessible. This BLOG is another effort to reach out to the residents of Mount Rainier.
