Additionally, the facility was identified as needing significant repairs in the 2014 Master Plan with an overall grade of D in the Facility Assessment that compares it to other existing Community Centers in Columbus. The existing kitchen equipment and finishes are not commercial grade yet there are events hosted at the site that would benefit to having use of commercial grade stove, oven, hood, refrigerator, and sinks.
