There are a lot more hardhats milling around the Carrollton office of Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative. The co-op is in the process of renovating the Tisinger Community Center. Construction on the headquarters building began on Monday, July 16.
The original Tisinger Community Center was constructed in the late 1970s and has only experienced minor updates since the original construction. With the new renovation, Members will be able to experience better parking and easier facility access for events as well as improved visibility and appearance of the Carroll EMC headquarters.
“The expanded Tisinger Community Center and visitor parking will allow us to host larger community events,” said Jerome Johnston, Carroll EMC COO. “Also, the larger space and full commercial kitchen will have the capacity to provide efficient meal service to all Carroll EMC and mutual aid employees during major outage events; thus, allowing us to provide a more efficient response to our Members.”
During construction, the impact to Members will be minimal. Members will continue to have access to the lobby and Member Services counter during normal business hours throughout the entire construction process. Signage is posted to help guide visitors around the construction zone. In addition, perimeter fencing/barriers will be maintained to secure the construction zone and keep visitors safe.
