The concept of a Community Activity Center was first introduced in 1995. The proposed Center went through several design changes. In 1999 Borough Council rejected construction bids submitted by several private contractors. The cost far exceeded $250,000 construction budget. Afterwards, Mr. Merriman, Public Works Superintendent, proposed the Borough build the Center in-house utilizing Public Works and Parks & Recreation Department employees. Upon Council's approval, construction started in spring 2000. In addition to their normal duties, Borough crews worked at the Center for 15 months. "The finished product exemplifies the skill and craftsmanship of our employees," said Borough Manager Ambrose Rocca. With the exception of the roof, flooring, air conditioning and some plumbing, Borough forces completed all other work. The Center is a 6,000 square foot building with two floors and has a barn-like appearance.

The lower level houses a pool table, electronic dart board and ping-pong table serving as a recreation center during specified hours. The upper level consists of a beautiful large open room to be used for a variety of programs as well as a rental facility. A commercial-style kitchen, rest rooms and large attached deck make the center ideal for rental
