La Mott Community Center closed indefinitely

The La Mott Community Center on Willow and Sycamore Avenues recently closed its operations due to maintenance concerns with the building.

“It’s indefinitely closed to the public at the moment. We don’t know when exactly it’ll be back quite yet,” Fabien Desrouleaux, Director of Parks & Rec, said. “There are a few maintenance items that need to be taken care of. We are hoping to soon find out what the next steps are.”

The Center includes a full indoor basketball court, playground, a supervised summer playground program, a summer teen enrichment program, year-round indoor recreational and educational programs, senior citizen programs, various health programs, and a playing field.

The Center’s status joins Rowland Community Center and Glenside Hall, each of which are temporarily closed. Fabien plans to address each facility’s situation going forward.

“We used to use Glenside Hall as a rental facility, and we’re looking at future plans for all three of those facilities,” he said. “I want to evaluate the budget for this coming year, so there are a number of factors at play before I can determine what I’m going to do.”
