This Place Matters

This Place Matters Redding is a movement that was formed in summer 2017 under the leadership of the Shasta Historical Society, Shasta County Arts Council, Sue Lang, Michael Kuker and Debra Lucero to save the 108-year old Bell Rooms building on the south side of Shasta Street, just west of California Street. The movement “encourages and inspires on-going dialogue about the importance of place and preservation in all lives.”

If you are interested in getting involved in This Place Matters Redding or want to know more about the Redding Cultural District, plan to attend a meeting on Tuesday, November 15, 2017 from 4-5:30 p.m. at Old City Hall in downtown Redding, CA.

“Learn the history of Bell Rooms Block 13; discover how Cultural Assets Mapping can turn around our economy; pick up your SAVE BELL gear; witness the ringing of Old City Hall’s bell in honor of the Bell Rooms. Come see how THIS PLACE MATTERS to us. We don’t need another parking lot. The city’s own NEW not-yet-adopted Transportation Plan demonstrates this.”

Among the supporters as of November 2017 are Mike Dahl, Ann Muir Corrin, Eddie McAllister, Ken Hill, Ellen Southard, Julie DePrada-Schott, Mike Rimbault, Debra Lucero, John Truitt, Sue Lang, Dottie Smith, Michael Kuker, Shasta Social Media, Gabriel Leete, Megan Conn, Viva Downtown, Shasta Living Streets, Redding Peace Officers Association, Axiom Repertory Theatre, Healthy Shasta, Redding Performing Arts Society, Doors Of Perception Art Collective, Shasta Historical Society, Turtle Bay Exploration Park and United Way of Northern California.
