Help us revitalize 545 Lombard Street by signing in support of establishing Studio 545, Fair Haven's own co-workshop and creative incubator. Our organization would provide affordable studio space for budding artists and entrepreneurs, especially those whose work aligns with our mission to support environmental and community wellness. As such, the space would not only serve as a community resource for creative exploration but also for sustainable lifestyles and holistic wellness.

Our facility would offer both designated and shared studio space as well as a communal garden and kitchen to support various maker activities. Largely focused on community engagement, we would also host a variety of events - classes, workshops, discussions and drives - and offer scholarships to local students.

Prospective studio residents include: a nature inspired product line offering all-natural and eco-friendly goods and services including balms, deodorants, creams, jewelry,  tea blends, and photography shoots; a wellness and healing space that provides holistic goods and services including yoga, tarot, crystals, smudge sticks, and CBD products; a city-minded sustainability group that works to promote environmental education and take action in the community; and unique art and sculpture fashioned from scrap metal and recycled objects.

Located in a residential neighborhood, Studio 545 needs to have a use variance approved by the City of New Haven Board of Zoning Appeals to operate commercially. By signing this petition you are supporting the approval of this variance.

Thank you for your time and support!

Sincerely,

Madelaine Fargeorge, Owner-operator
