Nina Milligan is the Communication Manager for Issaquah Highlands—the planned community of about 10,000 residents, including over 1M square feet of residential/commercial development. She recently served on the Issaquah City Council after eight years on Issaquah’s Urban Village Development Commission. Through both appointments, Nina worked on several land use actions, including very large and complex development agreements. She also served on the Citizens Advisory Group for the Rowley Property development agreement in Central Issaquah, laying the groundwork for the Central Issaquah Plan.
The Pomegranate Center has had a busy spring: in addition to moving offices and introducing our newest program, the Institute for Everyday Democracy, we’ve double our Board, adding four dynamic new members. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll introduce them all here, starting with Board Secretary Erika North.
In honor of our founder Milenko Matanovic and in service of our mission to build stronger communities, during this year’s GiveBIG campaign (happening on May 10th!) we seek to raise funds in celebration of our new Courageous Collaborators Scholarship. Scholarships will provide tuition to one of our two-day Pomegranate Method trainings.
From our humble beginning in founder Milenko Matanovic’s home through twenty-five years in our current Issaquah location, it’s time again for the Pomegranate Center to move on. At the start of May, we’re relocating to the Impact Hub, a co-working space for nonprofits located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.
