Construction Of New Stupak Community Center Underway
The Meadows Village neighborhood, located just west of the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino, will soon celebrate the beginning of work on a new and improved 34,000 square-foot Stupak Community Center. The new center will be located across from the current center at 300 W. Boston Ave. The current center will stay open during construction of the new facility. It has served the area well, but is simply to small to handle the current demand for services.
The new two-story building will feature an indoor multi-sport gym, classrooms, a kitchen, library, arts classroom, weight fitness and aerobics room and a game room. The center will continue to offer activities such as English as a Learning Language classes, before and after school activities, back-to-school events, youth and adult programs. The center also serves as a meeting place for numerous groups such as the Gateway District Neighborhood Association and the Stupak Youth Council.
A groundbreaking event will take place Aug. 18 to officially kick-off the work, which is expected to take 14 months.
