Palm Coast, FL – The City of Palm Coast will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Palm Coast Community Center Renovation and Expansion Project at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, and the public is invited to attend.
Palm Coast Mayor Milissa Holland and the Palm Coast City Council will host the ceremony outside at the Community Center, 305 Palm Coast Pkwy. NE (corner of Palm Coast Parkway and Club House Drive). Mayor Holland and others will speak, and light refreshments will be served.
Construction will soon begin on the project, which will provide more program space, meeting rooms and parking. The Community Center has been a wonderful amenity in Palm Coast since it was built in the mid-1970s, and the City is looking forward to updating the center and adding more recreational space for its growing community.
Much of the current structure will be torn down to make way for a 21,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that will be three times the size of the current Community Center. It will have three large meeting/party rooms, an attractive lobby, two kitchens and administrative offices for the Parks & Recreation Department. Outside will be a new playground and basketball court, a trailhead with restrooms and added parking. The new center will be built to LEED standards for environmental sustainability and resource efficiency. The design also preserves the property’s treasured, historic oak trees. Construction and move-in are expected to take a little over a year.
The construction manager for the project is Ajax Building Corporation. The public can see renderings, site and floor plans, and follow the construction progress at www.palmcoastgov.com/communitycenter.
The Community Center is now closed for construction, and the Parks & Recreation Department has moved temporarily to offices at Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool, 339 Parkview Drive, Palm Coast. The many programs and meetings normally housed at the Community Center are being relocated during the project. The phone number will remain the same: 386-986-2323.
