The Town of Alta is excited to share the results of the commissioned feasibility study and draft design of our new community center, designed by Ennead Architects. We are as proud of the beautiful primary and alternate designs they developed, as we are of the collaborative community process that got us here, all conducted remotely during the pandemic, and structured to incorporate as many voices as possible so that the resulting center will serve the various needs of everyone in Alta.
