In the dreams of the community for over ten years, the Cordova Center project has been a massive undertaking for the City. Once completed, the multi-use facility will host the Cordova Public Library, the Cordova Historical Museum, municipal administrative offices, performance/theater spaces, and conference/meeting spaces capable of accommodating up to 200 attendees.
Phase I, the exterior construction, began in September of 2010 and concluded in October of 2012. Phase II began in mid-July this year and is set to conclude in mid-2015. Phase II includes the finishing of the interior spaces of the facility, the mechanical, plumbing and electrical work. Dawson Construction, Inc. has been retained as the contractor for Phase II. Nearly 80% of the funding for Phase II has been secured and the Capital Campaign – Get ‘er Done – is underway to fulfill the final funding goals.
