The project involves a partial renovation of the existing building (built 1950s) and also a demolition of part of the building wing built in the 1980s (4,340 sf) and a portion of the building wing built in 1959 (869 sf). The project would also include demolition of a 677 sf restroom south of the community center and expansion of the parking lot from 113 spaces to 140 spaces.
