The History of The Community Center
Many years ago, Hampton had a vision to someday have a Community Center that could provide amenities to the broad spectrum of our residents, from children to senior citizens and from athletes to literary enthusiasts. The stumbling block was how to build this multi-purpose facility without financially burdening the township residents.
A few years ago, as a result of creative thinking and a cooperative interest rate market, council was presented a scenario that refinanced Hampton’s existing debt, phased out the Township Sanitary Authority, and issued additional bonds that would cover the cost to build the Community Center. Amazingly, the annual debt service cost after implementing this refinancing plan and issuing new bonds was actually lower than the annual $1.6 million dollar combined annual average debt of the Township and Sanitary Authority at that time. Only 10 additional years were added to the original debt schedule, even though the expected minimum life of the Community Center is 50 years.
Today, the Hampton Community Center is open to the residents of Hampton and the northern Allegheny County regional area. With recreation programs, dance classes, birthday parties, weddings, social gatherings, quiet library time, and much more!
