Space center opens to non-profit groups

DOWNEY รข?? Non-profit organizations headquartered in Downey that provide services to the local community can have free use of the Columbia Memorial Space Center once a year according to formal policy adopted by the City Council last week.
According to the policy, organizations would only be charged for the direct cost of staff time if the center is booked after-hours.
Security is also required if alcohol will be served at the event or if attendance exceeds 100 people.
Non-profit and youth groups must be based in Downey to reserve the space center for up to six hours at no cost.
The space center normally charges $25 per hour for non-profit groups or $50 per hour for non-profit organizations based outside Downey.
The rate is $85 for commercial usage and $65 per hour for non-commercial and families.
