Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

Public invited to mingle and help decide future direction


The doors of the middle school in Grand Coulee will be opened for a special meeting of the minds tonight (Wednesday) from 5-7 p.m., a time arranged for the community to tour it and talk about the building’s future and more.

“Grand Coulee Dam Area 2020 Vision” will be a modest affair, offering a tour of the building that was until last fall the Grand Coulee Dam Middle School, and encouraging conversation about its possible uses and the direction of the community.

The tag line on the event is “Let’s start envisioning our future – creating our community.”

The timing of the event, 5-7 p.m., was chosen to make it easy for people to come and go, many after work and on the way home.

Ideas under discussion will be posted on a wall in the gym, with adhesive dots available to use to indicate your preference, or to make other suggestions.

Cookies and beverages will be offered.

A committee of the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce has been actively pursuing possibilities, which now seem to dovetail with visions of a possibly separate wellness center also under discussion, with new funding possibilities.

An architect’s initial renderings of that vision at two possible locations may also be on display if they are ready. One of those locations illustrations would depict an addition on the old school.
