Community Center Grounds Renovation

The Community Center is a popular location for events, recreation and entertainment. This year we're starting a project to update the grounds around the buildings since the site is approximately 50 years old. This will include the ponds, walkways, landscaping and open space. Our goals are to make them more attractive and easier to maintain. We also want to improve the recreational opportunities. We'll be looking for your input along the way. The first step is to determine the scope of work for the project.
