When will construction for our new building begin?
Construction will begin in September 2020 and will continue for approximately 18 months. All construction will take place on the property behind the current JCC where the ballfields and pavilion are currently located.

Will the current JCC building be open and accessible to members while construction is occurring?
We anticipate that our current JCC building will be open and operational during the majority of the time when construction of the new JCC is taking place. We will keep members apprised of any and all updates. Our goal is to not inconvenience members or guests. 

What parking areas will be available to members?
Parking may be mildly affected during construction. We will alert members and provide ample signage regarding parking areas as needed. A construction entrance will be established on the North side of Anshei S’fard where trucks will be asked to enter/exit the property in order to not impact daily operations.

What are some of the unique program and operational features of our new building?
The new JCC will be a hub for all ages and will include a spacious and secure central lobby with gathering area and arts space. A 30,000-sq. ft. health and wellness center, a 13,000-sq. ft. modern indoor aquatics center including a six-lane lap pool, a recreational pool featuring a splash and play area with water slide, and a full size gymnasium are included in the plans. The outdoor pools will remain in place and will be supplemented with additional outdoor recreational areas, courts and a fitness yard. A large flexible space to be used for community events and CenterStage will be part of the new facility as well as a bright, engaging and safe early learning center with multi-use classrooms and designated outdoor courtyard.
