Sand Point Community Center
Project Fact Sheet
The 1999 Community Center levy provided $2.991 million for renovation
of the existing Sand Point Community Center to develop a full-service
center to meet neighborhood demands. An additional $1.026 million was
added from the Major Maintenance Fund to pay for the roof replacement.
The former Naval Base recreation center provides about 50,000 square
feet of space that includes a two-court gym, 2 handball/racquet ball
courts, a theatre and a swimming pool, none of which are compliant with
city and state codes, having been built under federal jurisdiction decades
ago. The renovation will provide a community center with a gym, theater
and meeting room. The pool and athletic rooms upgrades will be postponed
until more funding is available.
Project Update (as of June 2004)
In early 2003, the building underwent significant renovations, opening
up new facilities to northeast Seattle that offer a gymnasium, theater
and meeting room. Building improvements, which were completed in January
2004, included the installation of wood floors for indoor recreation,
opening up a lobby area -- which also links to an adjacent community
garden -- and an improved heating and ventilation system.
$2.991 million was provided by the Community Center Levy for renovations;
an additional $1.026 million came from the Major Maintenance Fund to
pay for the roof replacement.
Public Involvement Process
The public involvement process was completed with the award of the project.
