Funding for the Dayton Community Center remodel was funded in part with a Community Development Block Grant from Oregon Infrastructure Finance Authority.

The City hired Boora Architects, Inc. from Portland, Oregon for design and construction management of the project and Nomarco, Inc. from Woodburn, Oregon was hired to complete the improvements.

The Phase I remodel, completed in 2011, included the following:

  • Installation of a fire suppression system on both floors
  • Installation of an elevator and a new exit staircase from the second floor
  • Creation of a new main entrance/portico with redesign of entrance staircase to ensure ADA accessibility
  • Remodel of the existing first and second floor restrooms for ADA Accessibility
  • Replacement on the existing sheet metal roof and two original layers of composition roofing and installation of a new sheet metal roof
  • Replacement of all exterior windows
  • Replacement of all carpeting on first and second floors
  • Abatement of asbestos tile in the first floor kitchen and restrooms
  • Refinishing of the original wood floors in the upper auditorium
  • Installation of emergency backup lighting for the second floor
  • Remodel of the kitchen facilities, cabinetry, and wiring provision to install a commercial grade kitchen
  • On site improvements including a new parking lot with fifty parking spaces, and new landscaping and lighting


On August 1, 2011 the Dayton City Council renamed the structure the Palmer Creek Lodge Dayton Community Center.  The City of Dayton held a grand opening for the new facility on September 26, 2011.

The City intends to continue to pursue additional grant fund sources for additional impovements to the Community Center as funding permits and as needed.
