The Community Center reopening has been delayed. Due to unforeseen logistical supply-side issues, some materials for the remodel will not arrive as scheduled for installation.
After 20-years of continuous use, the Fountain Hills Community Center was looking tired and worn. Last fall, the Town Council approved the remodeling project at the cost of approximately $1,035,000.
The Center is home to various classes, physical fitness programs, conferences, art classes, Home Delivered Meals, support groups, adult and youth recreation programs, exercise programs, durable medical equipment services, and special events. In addition, the facility is available for weddings and special weekend functions.
Funding for the Community Center remodeling project is through the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and the Facilities Reserve Fund. Remodeling project includes:
• Painting the complete interior.
• Remodeling the restrooms.
• Installing new flooring throughout the building.
• Replacing and upgrading audio-visual equipment.
• New furnishings.
• A new front desk.
• Countertops in classrooms.
• Improvements to the stormwater drainage system at the front entrance.
The Community Center will reopen later this fall. There will be a grand reopening ceremony, so look for upcoming announcements on the Town’s website at www.fh.az.gov or Facebook page @TownofFountainHills.
