Community Center Construction

On November 1, 2012, groundbreaking ceremonies were held at the northwest corner of Spanish Fort Boulevard and Blakeley Way (map), site of the new Spanish Fort Community Center.  Forrest Daniell & Associates, P.C., was contracted to design the center, working with the City's Community Center Advisory Board on the conceptualization and functionality of the facility.  J.F. Pate & Associates was awarded the contract to construct the Community Center. An overabundance of rain has, at times, hampered progress on the new facility, but it is expected to be completed by late Fall of 2014.  

Elements included in the design of the structure were drawn from Spanish Mission-style architecture and from some of Spanish Fort's former historic landmarks, such as the Spanish Fort Village Motel.  The Community Center will include a full-service, state-of-the art library, a seniors center with craft areas and a fitness center, a multi-purpose room for City Council, Municipal Court and Planning Commission use, as well as the administrative offices for the City of Spanish Fort.
