REM is now creating a list of spaces in our community presently available for public use including information about the rental fees, time available, parking, furniture and equipment, etc. and placing that information on our site at www.rem1.org.
Catering for community events would be the renters choice. Area food service businesses which do not have spaces to accommodate such events would have the option of renting Community Center spaces including kitchen facilities. Renters having events could choose to save money by either bringing their own home-prepared food or using the center's kitchen.
Rental fees for REM Partner organizations and Business Sponsors will be at reduced fees and free for their organizational Board and business meetings...just as they always were at The Center on Main Street.
Great communications must include great sound, lighting and projection...both inside the building and outside for festivals.
Keeping the REM website at www.rem1.org up to date and allowing communications between the teams working to build the center will be very important.
The primary inhabitant of the new community center would be the community and all of the community initiatives developed by consensus to be housed there. REM would like like to establish a permanent home for REM in the community center. The intent is to always have a space for community events and initiatives that is not dependent upon a business or landlord who may decide to change the use of the building.
