A warm and convivial crowd turned out on February 9, 2019, to the International Estonian Centre (IEC) Community Engagement session held at the Estonian House café. A few future school users played quietly and happily as their parents participated.
Representatives from the project team were on hand at the productive and informative morning. Great interest was expressed by community members through a number of questions on how the new centre would function. Leading the presentation were David Kalm, Project Manager; Alar Kongats, Architect and Urve Tamberg, Executive Manager of the Steering Committee.
Steady, solid progress is being made on the key priorities that will make the new centre a reality and a second round of community consultations will take place in March. Feedback from the first round of consultations has already been incorporated into the design. The goal is to develop a financially sustainable facility that is as flexible as possible for as many people and organizations as possible.
