Community Hall Improvements – Next Phase

It has been a few years since we installed windows and doors in the old Gym and transformation it into Community. Yup, its been 6 years!  We had hoped to start sooner on a next phase but COVID complicated those plans.

Fortunately, thanks to a group of generous donors, we are getting ready to take the space to another level with sound, light and esthetic improvements.

These initial conceptual renderings are based on acoustic recommendations from a study we conducted in 2022. Based on these recommendations, we have explored various flooring, wall, and lighting scenarios.

Our goals for the space include:

  • New flooring
  • Acoustic Ceiling
  • New LED Lighting
  • Stage Spots
  • Stage Curtains

We are working to secure funding for new flooring (which is currently painted tile on concrete) to complete Phase 2 improvements.

Future Phases

  • Upgrade access and parking on the east side of the Gym
  • Solar awnings for windows and doors
  • Plaza and Solar awnings on west side of Gym that connects to Calaway room (a three season outside room)

The Gym Renovation Project will not only result in daylight streaming into the space from windows, doors, we want to upgrade the space so it can host a much greater range of events – during the day as well as at night. Our Calaway Room already hosts an amazing range of events and activities and we’d like the gym to be able to do the same – at 3x times the size.

New lights at night
