Have Your Say on the Renewal of the Civic Conservatory

For immediate release: May 17, 2018 - 11:00am
The City invites residents to provide their feedback about the future plans for the Civic Conservatory. We invite you to share your past experiences, and ideas for future programming at the Conservatory. This input will be used to draft a conceptual plan for the renewal and possible expansion of the facility.
A short five-minute questionnaire has been developed on the types of programs and activities that may be considered in a renewed and/or expanded Civic Conservatory. The questionnaire is open until June 4, 2018 and can be accessed at
The first phase of the project is to identify programming and space needs among key stakeholders and the public. Based on those needs, design concepts will be created and will be used to pursue funding partners for the renewal and possible expansion of the Conservatory. The design concepts will be shared in the fall for further public discussion.
The Conservatory is temporarily closed due to upgrade work on the Mendel Building and will reopen at a later date after the renovations to the building and the Children’s Discovery Museum are complete.
