Robinson envisions the Powerhouse as a “vibrant, welcoming, and truly inclusive space where all Beloiters collide to interact, build community, and have a little fun.”
Powerhouse project manager Dan Schooff reports that each week brings something new to the increasingly busy construction site along the Rock River.

The $38 million project is fully funded and includes approximately $10 million in federal and state tax credits.
