Project Plan

The proposed design and improvements will have all of the features of a true community center. The signature aspect is the new banquet hall that will be transformed from the former classroom and office areas, which will seat 450. The banquet hall will also feature an outdoor gathering space on the east side of the building overlooking the Templeton Ball Park. The bar area will be accessible from the banquet hall and main hallway. The layout of the banquet hall, restrooms, and current cafeteria/gymnasium are such that multiple events could be hosted in the facility at one time.

The current restrooms will be expanded, modernized and made handicapped accessible, and the main floor will also have a new family restroom. Complete restrooms are also being added on the lower gym level. The current library is being remodeled into an executive conference room, and the kitchen will be completely updated with new appliances, cabinets, and fixtures, as well as a new access to the main entrance.

The building will receive completely new electrical, mechanical, and HVAC systems. All exterior windows and doors will be replaced, and exterior walls will be insulated to make the building more energy efficient. The roof will be replaced, and existing exterior stonework and brick will be cleaned and tuck-pointed as necessary. New stone will be placed on selected portions of the exterior of the building, and exterior landscaping will be refreshed to give the building new character. All exterior concrete walkways will be replaced, and new concrete parking will be installed on the north side of the building.

Fundraising for the project began in June of 2012, and work on early phases began shortly thereafter. Asbestos was removed, the roof was replaced, demolition was started, and structure work was completed before July of 2013, when the formal bids for the main remodeling project were released. Badding Construction began remodeling in September of 2013, and interior work is ongoing with a projected completed of April 2014. Exterior work will begin in the spring of 2014 and the entire facility will be completed later that summer.
