Need to think outside the box? Visit the Innovation Center

City employees have access to a new creative space designed for brainstorming and innovative thinking across departments. The new Innovation Center on the first floor of the Crown Roller Mill Building has meeting spaces available now.

The Innovation Center offers a collaborative co-working space designed to optimize innovation across the enterprise by providing a unique environment and technology to foster information sharing, creativity, knowledge sharing and enterprise alignment with the ultimate goal of developing comprehensive solutions to better run the City.

The center can accommodate multiple groups and individuals simultaneously. Users are encouraged to host short-to mid-term projects.

You are responsible for reconfiguring the room to meet your needs. Please return the room to its original configuration when your event is complete, and leave the area as clean as possible.

The Innovation Center became available when the previous tenant left recently. It will continue to be available as meeting space for employees through the City’s lease of the Crown Roller Mill Building, which ends August 2016. The Innovation Center is managed by CPED’s Operation and Innovation Team.

Visit citytalk/cped/IC to learn more about the Innovation Center. If you need to reserve the co-working space for special events or have a question, email [email protected].
