Tolson Center

ELKHART — The process of upgrading the Tolson Center is moving forward, as the center’s new board has been formed and had its second meeting Monday.

City Council in March appropriated $5 million for an upgrade to the community center, adding more space, an additional gymnasium and significantly improved outdoor facilities. A press release Monday said the total cost is now estimated at $11 million, rather than the previous $10 million. That does not change the city’s portion of the funding, as the remaining $6 million is anticipated to come from the Community Foundation of Elkhart County, private donations and grants.
