From the Paper:

"Creating public awareness among the general populace will require more creative and less structured planning. First series of groups to address would be scout, church and other social groups. In a similar manner to meeting EALR desires, CWB should try to identify merit badges with which to align programs with both Boy and Girl Scouts. Once that task is accomplished, developing a list of key scout leader contacts could be executed fairly quickly. Other groups would be interested in the center for its appeal to team building and uniqueness. Certainly, the installation of a light rail stop and city park next door will elevate CWB's presence in the spotlight."
"Being recognized as a key piece of South Lake Union's growth by its developer is a competitive advantage CWB needs to manage and leverage. The first task should be inclusion in promotional brochures that come out of Vulcan. Two more actions could foster a strong community tie. First, with 10,000 new residences coming into the area an opportunity may exist to offer $50 voucher for CWB programs for the first series of residents or a reminder that the center offers free boat rides on Sunday afternoons."
