The Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD) along with the City of Vallejo have completed the renovation of the North Vallejo Community Center, located at 1121 Whitney Avenue,
The renovation was completed in nine months at a cost of $2.25 million, funded by Measure K and the former Flosden Acres Redevelopment Area allocation. At the beginning of the project, the building was 2600 square feet and with the conclusion of the remodel is now a spacious 4400 square feet. The improvements include new restrooms, enclosing the courtyard to create a large indoor space suitable for everything from dance classes to wedding receptions, new flooring throughout, new heating and air conditioning, new windows, fencing, landscaping, and current building code upgrades.
The community has eagerly anticipated these renovations. The former City of Vallejo Redevelopment Agency allocated approximately $1.7 million from the Flosden Acres Redevelopment Area to fund the much needed improvements to the center in 2002. Due to the lack of funding to complete the project, Measure K, passed by Vallejo voters several years ago, allowed GVRD to combine the redevelopment allocation to make this project a reality.
GVRD and the City of Vallejo invite neighbors and members of the community to come and enjoy the celebration and ribbon cutting of the new community center. The event will be held on Saturday, October 29 at 12:00 p.m. An open house will follow until 3:00 p.m.
