Welcome to the first issue of the QUIXOTE VILLAGE BLOG!
Over the next few weeks and months we will keep you up to date here with progress made in the construction of Quixote Village, a permanent supportive housing site for homeless adults in our area. The development will include 30 small cottages surrounding a community building, and we hope it will look something like this:
The residents of Camp Quixote and Panza have been dreaming of building the Village ever since the camp began, and now, after years of fundraising, planning and designing, the day is finally here!
We are overjoyed to announce that what used to look like this:
Now looks like this:
Thanks to the extremely generous donation of Alan Potter and his crew at AEP Hauling and Dozing, clearing of the site has begun, and excavation of the stormwater ponds will soon follow. HoooooRahhhh!
So keep an eye on these blog pages for on-the-spot and up-to-date postings on our progress! If you want to know more about who we are and where we’ve come from, check out the rest of the Quixote Village website.
Oh, and be sure to mark your calendar for June 8th and our groundbreaking celebration at 2 pm at the construction site, 3350 Mottman Rd SE, 3/4s of a mile west of South Puget Sound Community College, in Olympia. It will be a grand time, and an opportunity for everyone to get involved in this wonderful project to help our homeless neighbors. See you there!
