Special Vote By Residents on the Final Phase of the Community Center Renovation


The 6TD Commissioners set up a Planning Committee in 2008 and they have since been overseeing a multi-phase renovation of the 104 year old Rowayton Community Center complex at 33 Highland Avenue. The final phases are in the works. The Courtyard is currently being re-built and now the final phase of renovation is on the drawing board.

Come on Wed November 16th at 730 PM at the Community Center to vote on the proposed plan of (1) environmental remediation (2) final phase of HVAC replacement and (3) interior renovation. The Planning Committee will present 3 interior renovation options after input from 3 community charrettes/discussions (2012-13).

Possibilities include a bigger, higher capacity meeting room with more natural light and wiring for the 21st century, better access to both downstairs and upstairs, a new kitchen, more meeting rooms, better circulation, etc. 

There will be a public vote on this final phase at the next Commissioners' meeting on 11/16/16.
