COMMUNITY CENTER

The Community Center was built nearly 50 years ago and used to be the place to go in Streamwood. The Streamwood Park District is in the process of renovating the facility so that it can serve the residents for decades to come.   

In 2020 the District applied to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources for a Park and Recreation Construction (PARC) Grant to help fund the needed repairs and improvements and later to the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Development for the “Rebuild” and Fast-Track” grant programs. Unfortunately, the grant applications were not selected for funding as there were more requests than funding available. 

The Streamwood Park District has been able to shift funding resources and has begun making the required and desired renovations to the facility grouped by Phases. These phases will be completed as funding is made available. 

Phase 1 – IN PROGRESS

The complete replacement of the Community Center roof. The project, anticipated to last three weeks, includes the complete removal of the existing roofing and installation of new insulation and flat roofing materials. 

Phase 2

The District is planning on installing environmentally friendly solar panels that will generate local electricity and help reduce energy bills by an estimated 30%. There is no cost to the District for the renewable energy supply.

Phase 3

The District plans to paint the gymnasium, remove the basketball standards, and install FieldTurf synthetic grass in the gym. The grass will provide a great playing surface for soccer, batting practice, and possibly volleyball.
