Abode for Sri Venkateswara
The mission / Sankalpa of building the "Abode for Sri Venkateswara" named Mahi Tahi, signifying a development by the community fulfilling the aspirations of the community as a whole. Per our Sanatana Dharma and Hindu practices, this initiative will also be known as Viswakarma, after the Chief Architect of the Devas.
Our experienced Trustees, Shri S.Ramasubramanian, Shri Raghavan Vinjimoore and Shri Venkatesh Sankaran, formed a "Building committee" to guide the rest of us through this phase, and they will lead this initiative, manage the ongoing governance and communication related to this.
The building committee has established several smaller working groups to lead into this consultation phase to engage, seek, and collect input from our community.

Operational - Volunteers of our Temple or others with experience in running the temple are best placed to give ideas on facilities and functionality of the build.

Financial - Management and Accounting professionals with an understanding of Business Case preparation, Financing knowledge, Mortgage Brokers
Community Champions: comprising Elders, Youth, and Women - This committee will give us the Temple Facilities requirement of the community and will act as a Steering Committee
How do we work?
Each working group will have between 5 to 10 members; they will meet face-to-face at regular intervals, participate in workshops, contribute to this consulting phase and shape up the requirements for us to move on to the next stage.
