COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER EXPANSION IS COMPLETE!
November 3, 2016 - Los Angeles County officials joined in the ribbon cutting celebration for the Community Development Commission of the County of Los Angeles (CDC) capital improvement project to replace existing modular trailers with three new permanent buildings. In less than one year after breaking ground, the $4.2 million expansion project, funded by the office of former Fourth District Supervisor Don Knabe, included a multi-purpose room, health clinic, and support spaces.
The new permanent buildings allow for a larger and more functional reception/waiting area with computer workstations for the public to access, a multi-purpose room that can serve as both a classroom and meeting space, staff offices, and redesigned outdoor open space to be utilized for passive activity, programs, and special events. The new medical clinic increased the number of fully functioning exam rooms from one to three and provides a separate waiting area for clinic visitors. The CDC’s Construction Management Unit provided management services and completed the development on time and within budget.
The CRC’s core services include education, health, and programming for youth, seniors, and families. The new spaces significantly improved public amenities and repurposed the space in the existing main building to allow for an increase in the number of onsite service providers and more efficient space in providing services to meet the needs of the residents in unincorporated Whittier.
