For the past year, Norte has loved calling the Civic Center home, but thanks to explosive growth, more room is needed!
In partnership with Grand Traverse County Parks & Recreation, the Norte Wheelhouse will transform the historic Old Northwest Michigan Fairgrounds building at the Civic Center into a new community space for learning. The new Wheelhouse will teach and reinforce bike education through a variety of programs as well as independent and self-directed learning activities. The community-driven “Keep It Rolling” crowdfunding campaign aims to make the Wheelhouse a reality this summer to create a safe, dynamic and welcoming community space including new bay doors, new floor, paint, bike racks, new patio, tables, chairs, and workbenches, tools, supplies, and parts for the shop, additional bikes and helmets for the bike library, a mural, and scholarships.
