During the Feasibility Study in 2017, the multipurpose room was the center of focus on expansion or reconfiguration, to serve a dual purpose with the proposed Keene Senior Center. In fiscal year 2020, the floor in the multipurpose room was to be resurfaced. During this process, an extensive investigation was conducted as to the condition of the floor. The floor appears to have been insulated when the last renovations took place in 1987 but, due to the lack of space below the floor, it could not be fully insulated. Investigations demonstrate that no vapor barrier was ever put in place, causing moisture to rise and preventing the floor from properly adhering. The multipurpose room serves as a true community space, hosting programs from square dancing, archery, Tae Kwon Do, craft fairs, and a municipal polling location, just to name a few. This room was the original Armory gymnasium and was kept during the 1987 renovation to provide much-needed space. FY 24 Upgrading the ventilation system in the multipurpose room and main office area to meet current standards based on energy conservation and allowing for better ventilation and air quality. recommends a layered approach to reduce exposures to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This approach includes using multiple mitigation strategies, including improvements to building ventilation, to reduce the spread of disease and lower the risk of exposure. This would align with boiler replacement and would allow for a much better design. FY 25 Because of the various evaluations, this provides the City the opportunity to conduct a schematic design and cost estimate to renovate the room. This includes improving the lobby and bringing the public restrooms up to current ADA standards. The ability to heat the multipurpose room in the colder months is difficult at best, as the walls have no insulation, windows are in poor condition, and the flooring needs proper installation. The City promotes green energy and conservation and the opportunity to provide a model for energy efficiencies and create a more sustainable facility can be addressed through the renovation. This facility is also a Red Cross emergency shelter. This project is in included in the City of Keene FY 2023-2029 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). As of October 31, 2022, further details regarding design and construction have not been identified. *Project information has been obtained through a public capital improvement plan (CIP).

Information listed in the CIP often evolves based on funding availability and the project details, including timeline and value, are subject to change.
