Commencing Countdown…Engines On!
Welcome to the Future of Place Mining & Exploration
The ONS LaunchPad is a Solar Powered, Funky, Upcycled, Creative Place Making Lab & Beer Treehouse built atop a formerly vacant lot on the Blvd in beautiful Old North Sacramento
We’ll be flipping the switch on our solar-powered, streamline-modern Christmas tree and (hopefully) an incredible 20′ light sculpture depicting the State Capitol – it’s pretty awesome – plus hot cocoa and cold beer!
Bring your friends, family and guests!
The event is free but we will be accepting donations for the North Sacramento Community Development Corporation and
the Old North Sacramento LaunchPad.
The LaunchPad in Old North Sacramento will activate a blighted vacant lot at 1400 Del Paso Blvd. Our belief is that revitalization begins with stabilization and stabilization begins by establishing a beachhead — a ‘safe zone’ that allows the community the opportunity to unite behind a shared vision, and a mission control center’ capable of supporting that vision through economic development.
The LaunchPad will create an adaptive, creative space for events, classes, and community gatherings. The space will consist of a large, retro-fitted industrial multi-use building; an expansive multi-level ‘tree-house’ deck; and drought-tolerant greenspace.
The LaunchPad is divided into temporary placemaking modules with experiments meant to continuously evolve as artists and placemakers collaborate with different community sectors to realize their combined vision of what transforms a space into “a place”. At the end of each experiment, modules will return to the group that envisioned them.
