SACRED PLACES/CIVIC SPACES - CORRIDOR CONNECTIONS

In June 2018, the Zion Baptist Church Annex located at Broad and Venango Streets was selected as a site for "Sacred Places/Civic Spaces," an initiative of the Community Design Collaborative and Partners for Sacred Places, and sponsored by the William Penn Foundation. The initiative pairs congregations with a community partner and design volunteers to envision ways to revitalize and re-purpose underutilized spaces for community benefit. Called To Serve is Zion's community partner and Studio 6mm is leading the team of Collaborative volunteers. A public reveal event for designs will be held on December 4th, 2018.
