A new community center in Rowland Heights moved another step closer to reality today with approval by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to hire an architect to design the facility at Pathfinder Park.
Today’s action by the Board of Supervisors awarded a $1.2 million contract to Gonzalez Goodale Architects for design services, preparation of construction documents, and other related architectural services, including assistance during the bidding and construction phases. The funding comes from the Fourth District Capital Project Fund.
Rowland Heights has a tremendous need for a community center for group activities, social support, and recreation space, said Supervisor Knabe. Pathfinder Park is the perfect place to meet these needs.
The new community center will be up to 15,000 square feet, and will accommodate increased programming and community services for the residents of the unincorporated community of Rowland Heights. In addition, the facility will be designed to be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certified.
