“Our Department of Community Programs has served generations of Summit residents in the original community center building since 1954,” explains Summit Mayor Nora Radest. “As the popularity of our programs continues to grow, there is an increasing need for a complete renovation and expansion of the Community Center. We are thrilled to be able to undertake this important project for the benefit of the entire community.”
Improvements to the existing 8,000 square foot Community Center facility will proceed with a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency, and include an 11,600 square foot addition with an expanded senior lounge, full-sized gym, additional restrooms, enhanced meeting spaces, an area for teens, kitchen space, improved parking, and accessibility improvements.
During construction, the Department of Community Programs will move to Cornog Field House (at Soldier's Memorial Field), 5 Myrtle Avenue. Hours of operation are Monday - Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm and our phone number remains the same 908-277-2932.
