The Rotary Youth Center in Morrison offers young people, families and therapists an expanded space year round for treatment, training, physical education, recreation and group meetings.

The 4,100 square foot building is based on the Net Zero design and includes many elements that exemplify environmental stewardship, including a green roof, solar panel, rainwater harvesting, natural ventilation and lighting. natural.

Morrison wanted a space where children and their families could meet, reflect and connect with nature in a safe environment. The Therapeutic Garden includes a large rear gathering patio, terraced gardens, a playground and a picnic area. A series of paths and stairs connect the spaces with a variety of seating possibilities for informal counseling and relaxation.

Local artist Dominic Sigari, also known as Calm, worked with some of the teenage clients to create a ‘mural of positivity’. The teens drew something that represents growth and positivity to them, and Calm painted the entire mural with spray cans.

The City of Portland Planning Code required that new walkways, landscaping of existing parking areas and a new garbage enclosure be completed as part of the project. In addition, the requirements for improving access to the site’s driveway and the sidewalks on Sandy Boulevard have been added to the scope of work.
