The purpose of this project is to provide an updated vision for the design and development of a 30-acre area in the south end of the Washington Heights neighborhood in Battle Creek, Michigan, which serves as the home to New Level Sports Ministries’ “Youth Village” campus. Since the original Youth Village Master Plan was completed in 2018, New Level Sports has initiated some of the proposed projects in the plan and expanded its study area. This effort adopts the same purpose and vision as the 2018 plan while expanding the study area and exploring and illustrating new strategies accordingly.
Youth Village is the home of a growing mixed-use campus that serves as an important community anchor and a place to learn and practice skills related to athletics, education, art, industry, and personal growth. Youth Village will be connected, physically to its surroundings and socially to the community. The campus will be state-of-the-art, with buildings and open spaces that allow users to excel in their activities and a “look and feel” that makes a positive impact in the community. Youth Village will promote transparency with inviting spaces and inclusive programs open to all people. The campus will showcase New Level Sports Ministries’ holistic approach to sustainable, long-term personal and community growth in Battle Creek.
