It looks like the Seahawks’ Doug Baldwin is here to stay even after retirement. Doug and Renton Mayor, Denis Law, have been spearheading The Family First Community Center in Renton that is expected to start construction in 2020.
Located adjacent to Cascade Elementary on Renton’s Benson Hill, this unique community center will be 21,000 square feet and include a gym, fitness room and clinic which includes medical, dental and counseling services.
As someone who has worked with youth over the years, even in this exact neighborhood, I am encouraged by the variety of partners coming together to create this community center to serve the youth of Renton. The Doug Baldwin Foundation, The City of Renton, First Financial Northwest Foundation and several area businesses such as Starbuck’s, Car Pros, and ATS Automation, have made significant contributions. In total, this will be a $15 million-dollar project. This kind of unity is how we make a positive, lasting impact in our communities.
In March of 2018, Baldwin told 425 magazine’s Emily Manke that “Community centers not only provide athletic and educational activities, they are the building blocks for character building opportunities,” Baldwin explained. “These opportunities are being denied to many of the youth of today especially in the Cascade/Benson area.”
For my clients and others in the construction industry, here is a link to the RFP information on this unique project.
