Columbia Community Resilience Center Project

Tuolumne County is looking to use grant funds to turn the Armory building near the Columbia Airport into a Community Resilience Center similar to the two being built in Tuolumne and Groveland.  

Please share your ideas about the programs, services, amenities, and activities you would like to see provided at this facility.  Please fill out the survey to assist us in designing a Community Resilience Center for YOU.  

Thanks in advance for your time and effort on this project.

There will be an in person townhall community meeting on October 24th at the Armory Building at 10747 Airport Road in Columbia.  The meeting will start at 6pm.  Please join us to provide your valued input in regards to this program.
