DLR Group’s visioning and master planning process includes land-use planning, site feasibility study, and community engagement to build consensus for the project. The firm will utilize an online interactive tool and virtual reality experience to gather input and to help stakeholders understand the overall vision.

The Yuba Water Agency Board also approved curriculum development for the new facility to occur during the summer of 2020. The Board will hire Yuba County teachers to create lessons and a water-based curriculum to be implemented in all five school districts in Yuba County. DLR Group will work closely with the team of educators to incorporate interactive exhibits and experiences throughout the facility that complement the curriculum being concurrently developed. In addition to serving as a learning environment, the multi-purpose facility is intended to be a destination for recreational opportunities and events such as leadership retreats, weddings, and other large gatherings.
