Whitpain Township receives $10M donation for Community Center

Whitpain Township has received a $10 million donation for the construction of a community center.

From the Township’s announcement:

Although a need for indoor recreational space was noted in the Township’s most recent park and recreation master plan update, funding was always a key obstacle before the donation. The donor requested that their identity not be disclosed.

The Board of Supervisors recently issued a request for proposal, or RFP, for architectural and engineering firms experienced in constructing community centers. After receiving over 20 responses to the RFP, the Township is working through these proposals and ultimately the Board will select a firm in the coming weeks.

“Once the Township selects the team of consultants, they will help solicit key public input about the location of a potential new community center, amenities, and architectural style,” said Township Manager Roman Pronczak. “As part of our due diligence, we will also consult with experts in the field to ensure that any building is economically sustainable.”
