Each day, the work continues at the JCC at 360 Amity Road, completing demolition, opening walls and cleaning extensively. The insurance adjusters are in the process of determining the scope of work to be done. The remediation process should be completed by mid-March.
In January, our community welcomed a community planning consultant who facilitated a series of small focus groups among varied constituencies, including area synagogues and board representatives from community agencies. Committees are currently being organized to conceptualize the next phase of the project. Discussions are taking place to assess community needs—both present and future—to develop the best vision for a reimagined community presence that will be sustainable.
Although the JCC building is currently uninhabitable, adult and children’s programming is continuing around the community, fitness classes are in full swing at the JCC Fitness Center and the JCC Day Camp site is being prepped for another great summer.
Thank you to all the community partners, synagogues and agencies who have welcomed the JCC and Jewish Federation’s programs during this transitional time. We are proud of how our constituents have demonstrated the true meaning of community.
