Cumberland County Civic Center Joint Task Force

A Joint Task Force made up of Trustees and County Commissioners was created in the Fall of 2010 to oversee an Economic Analysis of Potential Renovation Options by consultants Brailsford & Dunlavy and the Goldwater Group. In early 2011, a Building Committee was created to choose an architect to make conceptual plans that could be used to go to voters for referendum. A referendum was brought to voters in fall of 2011 and it successfully passed.
