Norristown Community Facilities Project
The Montgomery County Recovery Plan allocates $7 million to provide a centralized facility or facilities space for community services and recreation serving the Norristown community. The County Recovery Office will work directly with the Norristown community to coordinate planning, design, and implementation of this project that responds to needs expressed by the community.
This process will catalogue existing Norristown assets and resources, review current plans and projects in design or underway, identify community needs, and assist the community in determining the best use of these funds to support a shared vision.
The $7 million allocated is not designated to a specific organization or location at this time, and could be used for renovation of existing space or other projects, as determined by the community.
- Collect Norristown community input as to what should be included in a community “hub” facility, establishing program of requirements to inform design.
- Conduct community facility asset study to establish inventory of available physical building assets in Norristown, providing conditional surveys of designated existing facilities in Norristown.
- Develop design plan for renovation and / or construction of facility/-ies based on program of requirements and incorporating sustainable plan for operations.
- Renovate and / or construct community center facility/-ies fulfilling program of requirements in line with design plan.
