Fraser’s historic church may get a new daily life as a programming center for the city and the Fraser Valley Recreation District to employ for group lessons and companies.

On Wednesday, the Fraser city board heard a proposal from Financial Enhancement Director Sarah Wieck about reworking the church to incorporate new classroom and storage area for artwork and artistic lessons.

The space will be used to help Fraser’s modern growth to its public arts offerings even though the town’s General public Arts Committee carries on to fundraise for its ultimate intention of making the Fraser Heart for Artistic Arts, a $5 million venture.

“The dialogue was that we use the historic church in the meantime,” Wieck explained to the board Wednesday. “I assume if we can make this take place, it would modify the community.”

The strategy would be to make an addition on the east side of the church to residence the new classrooms and storage, though protecting the existing house. Wieck clarified that the church doesn’t have a historic designation, but instead a neighborhood heritage, which the town desires to preserve.

“We want to continue to keep the integrity of the building, like the entrance bell tower,” Wieck claimed. “A whole lot of the concept is to have the house be definitely adaptable.”

She additional that up coming methods would be to get much more thorough styles and a price tag estimate for the get the job done.

Trustees ended up supportive of the strategy, with many proposing the task expand to incorporate a 2nd-floor with reasonably priced housing.

“The need is there, so it might complicate some points, but it’d be worth the complication,” Trustee Eileen Waldow claimed of including models to the design.
