Project Background

This project will replace the current Eastern Greenwich Civic Center building, which was built in 1950. Under the approved plan, a one-story 35,418-square-foot building will be constructed on the existing footprint. This new civic center will include a full-size multi-use gymnasium with roll-out spectator seating; 8,100 square feet of multiuse event space; and three 1,000-square-foot activity rooms, two of which will share a partition that can be opened to create a larger room. The Eastern Greenwich Civic Center is a Parks and Recreation facility.
