July 10, 2023 – The City of Davenport is pleased to announce details of another project in the community funded through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The Fairmount Community Center, located adjacent to the Davenport Public Library Fairmount branch, will have its groundbreaking ceremony on July 11, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. Construction is expected to take 9-12 months. 

The Fairmount Community Center will include 4,500 square feet of usable space with the ability to accommodate 359 occupants.  The facility will contain a half-court style gym for introductory sports, drop-in activity, and a wide range of other functions. The exterior of the building will include material that allows for movies to be projected onto it.

“The Davenport Parks and Recreation Department is thankful for the investment by our City Council to bring to fruition a new community center space for our residents,” said Chad Dyson, Director of Davenport Parks and Recreation. “This center will give residents space to enjoy community activities and recreational programming.”

The City of Davenport Parks and Recreation Department will manage and program the Community Center. This space will be available for the community to utilize and rent on weekends for various events.

In advance of the building’s construction, Fairmount Street will be closed for approximately two to three weeks for utility work to serve the new facility. The community will find information on traffic control and detours at within the next few days.
