The Gene Lucas Community Center

The McLean Foundation was established to support the people, arts and communities of the Eel River Valley. The McLean Foundation has developed a multi-facility complex that will provide venues for a variety of community functions. The center is sited on 36 acres in Fortuna, California and features facilities for seniors, youth and family programs, recreational activities, open space and trails, restored wetland and creek areas.

Greenway was chosen to design and manage the development of the first phase of this complex, The Gene Lucas Community Center.  We provided architecture, landscape architecture, and engineering design, as well as planning, entitlements, permitting, financial analysis, community and stakeholder engagement, as well as construction management services. The facilities were commissioned and opened in December 2019.
