In 2003, the East Hampton Town Board decided to save the existing building and turn it into a community center. Initial cleanup and historical restoration of the building, which began in Fall 2004, along with the inclusion of the Human Services and Recreation Centers, was completed in the first phase of construction. The facility opened to the public in April 2006. The overall project took 18 months to complete and encompasses 120,000 sq. ft. The Human Services Center includes a child day care center that can accommodate up to 60 children between the ages of 6 weeks and 4 years; a senior nutrition center that can serve up to 60 seniors daily; and an adult day care center that can accommodate 10 adults with special needs. The Recreation Center includes a high-school regulation-sized gymnasium with locker rooms, a fitness center and physical therapy office, and storage and office space. Additional improvements included a glass roof bay reminiscent of the original Carl Fisher design that is the focal point of the atrium lobby of the performing arts center.
