Construction activities for the Community Center Remodel Project is about 70% complete.
A temporary construction fence was installed along Rengstorff Avenue that enclosed the site around the existing community center and its parking lot. This fence is necessary to secure the site and ensure safety of the public during construction.
Please do not attempt to enter the site or park your car in the southwestern parking lot off of Rengstorff Avenue until construction is completed and the fence is removed.
The Community Center Remodel and site improvements will be completed in early 2019.
