On Monday, November 9, 2020, the Huntington Beach City Council launched a capital improvement project to rehabilitate Edison Community Center, located at 21377 Magnolia Street.  Project plans call for significant interior improvements including a newly remodeled lobby entrance, multi-purpose rooms, kitchen, restrooms, and service windows, all of which will modernize the facility to meet the growing needs of our community.

“This was a rewarding moment for the City Council,” says Mayor Lyn Semeta.  “Many of us spent countless hours at Edison Community Center, attending or volunteering at events or classes with our families.  We’ve made great memories here, and I am so pleased that, despite the budget challenges many cities are facing, we were able to keep our promise to improve our facilities and provide quality amenities that will benefit many generations to come.”  

The construction kick off, which was attended by Mayor Lyn Semeta, Mayor Pro Tem Kim Carr, and Council Members Barbara Delgleize and Jill Hardy, marks the first improvement project at Edison Community Center, since its dedication in 1973.  The project is designed to increase energy efficiencies, as well as enhance building accessibility and the flow of visitors.  These factors will not only improve a visitor’s experience at the Center, but also accommodate a larger number of programs and services offered by the Community Services Department. 

The Edison Community Center rehabilitation project follows the completion and November 7 rededication of similar improvements at Murdy Community Center.  Both projects represent the City’s commitment to rehabilitate its facilities to meet the growing needs of our community.  The City has budgeted approximately $1 million to construct the improvements, and anticipates a March 2021 completion date. 

The Edison Community Center sits on a 40-acre lot in the Southeast Area of Huntington Beach and provides a variety of community services and amenities for our community.  These improvements will allow the Huntington Beach Community Services Department to effectively provide over 200 quality recreation classes and activities for adults and children, including dance, sports, arts and other programming.
