Future Plans


The Eureka Springs Community Center Foundation reached its Phase One funding goal of $400,000 in February 2018.

The Foundation will continue to seek community involvement with all of the major components of this project. Because this dialogue between the Foundation, area residents, the business community, and many others is ongoing, these phases and their construction components and costs are constantly evolving.

The project will move to completion as each fundraising goal is met.
