The Dover Community Center Building Committee hosted its Screenshot (11) Opens in new windowsecond community forum on Tuesday, December 1 at 7pm via Zoom. One option was chosen by the Committee. This selection is important as the architects will design both the New & Renovation schemes based on the selected option at its projected cost. For each option the architects will present rooms of varying sizes that will host a wide variety of activities. The key to a successful design will be flexible, multi-use space. Your opinions and suggestions will help the Committee with its decisions. This is all about building a community center for the entire Dover Community.
