Dover Community Center Building Committee

The Community Center Building Committee in Dover has begun its process to bring to a future Town Meeting a Renovation plan for the existing Caryl Community Center Building on Springdale Street as well as a New Building plan to replace the current structure according to Ford Spalding, Chair, of the newly formed Committee.

On October 7, 2019 at Dover’s Special Town Meeting voters approved funding to develop detailed plans to hire an Owners Project Manager (OPM) and Design Team (Architect) to work with the committee to do a Feasibility Study of the current building condition and determine the criteria for a design plan.  This will involve citizen input as to programs to be hosted in the center.  The Architect will then do schematic design renderings for each option as well as determine total costs for the options.  It is anticipated that the results will be ready for Town Meeting approval by the spring of 2021.

According to Ford Spalding the guiding principal is the building will be a community building for all members and ages of the community to come together for social, exercise and creative activity.

The Dover Selectmen appointed committee has as its members:  Ford Spalding (Chair), Dave Billings, Luciana Burdi, Sam Cole, Barry Goldman, Terry Sobolewski & Ruth Townsend.

Meeting Agenda’s and Minutes will be posted on the Dover Town website.
