HAVE YOU COMPLETED THE 2019 FOUNDRY SURVEY?

DOWNLOAD IT TODAY!

——————————————————————————————

During 2019, The Foundry Consortium — the group selected to run the Foundry once its open — took over outreach for the Foundry project. You can connect with the Foundry Consortium at:https://cambridgefoundry.org/

The Foundry Consortium is holding a wide range of small and large meetings and conducting a community survey in 2019 to make sure that what happens at the Foundry is what you want to see. If you’ve not yet completed the Foundry Survey, download it here and return it via the instructions on the bottom of page 2.

Today’s vision for the Foundry was formed as a result of several years of conversations among Cambridge community members. From 2013-2018, the City and the CRA held public forums in which the community voiced support for redevelopment of the Foundry into an innovative multi-purpose center, creating a collaborative environment with a mix of cultural, educational, and commercial uses, consistent with the zoning requirements. Some of the suggested ideas have included multi-generational community uses, programs for early childhood and youth development, opportunities for mentorship, internship, apprenticeship, workforce training, and education in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math ("STEAM"), which would serve a broad sector of Cambridge residents.

Below are past community events hosted by the City of Cambridge or CRA staff regarding The Foundry's programming and redevelopment strategy. Additional information on the Foundry Advisory Committee, and their meetings can be found here.

Information on earlier redevelopment efforts can also be explored here.
