Renovations to the Miller Center are on scheduled; and according to city officials should wrap up by the end of this summer. The community center and Parks & Recreation’s headquarters, has been closed since January for refurbishing of the auditorium and to add a parking lot near the aviary. The work also included replacing the roof, upgrading mechanical systems and installing an elevator to serve the three-story facility. Once completed, it will house a specially-designed space for the Nature Zone, education center which is currently relocated at Kemper Street Station. Built in 1911 as a school, the City’s Parks & Rec department has called it home for the past four decades. The department hopes to move back in next fall. Full programming would be restored by January 2015.
