[ARCHIVED] Final phase of Dickerson Center improvements start

Final phase of Dickerson Center improvements start

A three-year project to improve amenities and functionality of the Dickerson Community Center and adjacent Campbell Aquatic Center is in its third and final phase. Temporary fencing was installed the week of July 4 around the construction area to allow for major enhancements that will provide better connectivity for the two facilities and increase capacity.

 Planned upgrades include additional parking, connecting sidewalks, improved exterior lighting and new basketball courts, while the tennis and racquetball courts will be removed.

The first phases of the improvements changed the entrance of the Campbell Aquatic Center and added sidewalks, a pool entry pavilion, new stairs and an ADA compliant ramp to enter the pool area and two canopy shade structures over new picnic tables.

Interior improvements to the Dickerson Community Center included new flooring and ceiling tiles, installation of an HVAC dust system and mold remediation in a portion of the building.

The building’s interior, which includes the computer lab, weight room and rooms used by the Boys & Girls Club, was repainted. 

The almost $1.7 million multi-year project received about $369,000 in grants from the Daytona Beach Racing and Recreational Facilities District and is scheduled to be completed in 2023.

During the construction, the Dickerson Community Center will remain open with access off of S. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The Campbell Aquatic Center remains closed as both pools are scheduled to be resurfaced.

Located in the heart of Midtown, the Dickerson Community Center serves a diverse population -- families, churches, schools and local clubs including the Boys & Girls Club. In 2013, the Boys & Girls Club relocated to the Dickerson Community Center from public housing, where it had operated for the previous 15 years.
