It's to operate the facility made up of some two dozen.

Modified shipping containers. The mayor says instead of a plan to focus on 100 chronic homeless individuals. It has scaled it back and changed the plan on who it will help first. mayor 6 32 6 48 So we modified it.There are units for individuals and units for couples and if that works we will open it up to families with children too. Remember, this is a pilot for one year. We are going to tweak it, improve it, The plan now is to provide shelter for ' individuals.

And 2 dozen couples. Those first 87 people would stay for two months possibly longer The goal is to serve 250 people first year. Connie Mtichell 35 03 3518 We are trying to fill the gaps and figure out how to serve certain people betterand its an improvement I hope on what we have been able to provide.

Vancouver receives help for affordable housing from CMHC

Atira Women's resource society has been providing housing to women fleeing violence for almost 30 years. There's actually 2 components to this project. One is the original building, which has been here since 1912. In that building we're housing young women who have been homeless, there are 18 rooms and it's communal living. The second part of the project is the recycled shipping container component. There are 12 selfcontained studio units here. The units are affordable, the rent is affordable, it's safe. Women are not only being able to interact with each other.

Music Yshape is the name of the Y container, because I want to create a flow in space, a flexible space compared to the traditional residential house. You'll see we do not have any fixed partition in the Yshaped house. The space is going to be more spacious, while we're still limited in 1,000 square feet footage. Also, I put so many customizable features in this house. You'll see there's a convertible wall, can customize as the consumers wish. music The last feature I want to introduce is an exterior platform, combined with a raining water recycle.

Iowa Theater Takes a Bow

Bradd Brown Cedar Rapids Theatre When people realized the water was going to get as high as it did, people started up to or showed up to join the sandbag line. People began to sandbag the facility buildings, um the water started coming in through the basement first and uh the lower level was completely decimated. The lower level has always kinda been the back of house area so it's been the green room, the dressing room, costume storage and mechanical, electrical type spaces. But then the water also came on up to the main level,.

So it flooded out the main lobby. Water reached about 7 rows high in the main house. When the cleanup efforts took place there was great care to save the cast iron side side components to the seats. We were able to restore those and reuse those in the new seating. It's also interesting that up in the opera boxes there are two chandeliers that have been put in place and uh many of us never knew there were ever chandeliers there. We were able to go back and find some old black and.

White photographs that do show the chandeliers in place. It was originally an RKO Theater, constructed as an RKO Theater, but yeah it has had performances by Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant many, many stars. I've mentioned to a number of people it's been a really good experience for us. We've uh, I think that the individuals we've met with from FEMA have been as eager to help bring the theater back as those of us who are involved with the project or on the board. They were very supportive you know helped guide us.

Through the process and made it a very easy process for us. Um, I'm also intrigued that with the assistance of FEMA, with the assistance of Vision Iowa and local donors, this will really be for, it's not a public owned building but it is kinda a public building, will be the first real significant public building that will come back from the flood of 2008. And this community needs a win, this community needs something positive to happen and I think this could really be a catalyst or turning point for Cedar Rapids.
