CORE VALUES DRIVING THIS PROJECT
Welcoming and Warm: Starting from the approach up the drive to the front door, and continuing through the Commons into the Sanctuary, we offer a welcoming experience engaging with the UUCCH community.
Embracing: We will create a space that ensures comfort and safety for all members and visitors. Our approach to lighting, seating, security, and décor will reflect the need for a warm, inviting and safe space.
Family and Community: We will support and enhance the experience of finding and belonging to a community at UUCCH.
Beacon of Energy: As we consider rebuilding, we will incorporate the idea that the facilities and the people within them are active and energetic. The UUCCH Sanctuary should visually convey that we are a beacon to the community.
Sustainable Stewardship: The totality of the project should demonstrate a respect for the environment and a commitment to minimize waste.
Fiscal Responsibility: We will make fiscally reasonable and responsible decisions, mindful of the financial resources of current and future members. We will select materials and systems that will work best for now and in the long term, choosing value over flash.
