The new Tri-Cities Corp Community Center will replace a 40 year old that is outdated and unable to meet the community's needs. The building site is nestled between a residential neighborhood and the downtown Newark commercial center.
The Community Center will provide local residents with a chapel, multipurpose room, classrooms, computer lab, teen game room, social service support, commercial kitchen and administrative offices. The site will incorporate a multi-use covered patio, basketball courts and parking lot.
The Community Center will be designed as a sustainable LEED Gold facility. Particular attention to natural lighting, water efficiency, recycled materials and thermal comfort will be incorporated within the facility design. The project is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015.
