Community members have long expressed the desire to have on-location job training and entrepreneurial support to help expand local businesses and increase earnings. The Stack Center will launch this programming with pop-up storefront spaces that will double as classrooms for job training, financial literacy, and other economic development activities. The spaces can be combined to create a multi-purpose room for larger community meetings and events, including City Council meetings. The storefronts will be anchored by the neighborhood's only café, which community members identified as a key community-building feature.
On the other side of the Stack Center campus, the renovated south building will retain the existing commercial kitchen. The renovation will expand the kitchen to add program space to host cooking classes and business incubation, including event rentals. Outside, the community events plaza is designed to host a weekly farmers market.
