A community is made better when residents, civil servants and local, governing bodies all work together for the common good. McLean is such a community, where the people who live here work hand in hand with Fairfax County and Dranesville District in support of what has become of the greatest community assets and resources of the region, the McLean Community Center.
More than just a building for people to gather, this facility has been undergoing a major transformation, and is finally opening its doors once again. For almost 2 years MCC has been getting a facelift, and additional space to better serve area residents through classes, events and opportunities to share and experience the best of what McLean has to offer as a community.
The official ribbon cutting and open house for the newly renovated McLean Community Center took place on December 5th. Known as “the Jewel of McLean”, the new center will be the place to be for years to come.
As reported by the McLean Connection, highlights of the major project include:
- Improved entryway on Ingleside Ave. with updated exterior lighting
- 2 new meeting rooms
- 1 new all-purpose room
- Consolidated and dedication spaced for MCC general staff offices
- New stormwater management system beneath the parking lot
- Newly renovated lobby and reception area with glass-enclosed courtyard
- New game room
Coming up January 5th, there will be a Community Open House where McLean residents can stop by for a self-guided tour of the new facilities including the Alden Theater where there will be sneak peek at the 2019 Spring season of performances. Visitors will also be able to check out class previews or get creative at the McLean Project for the Arts Duval Studio and make mixed media cards or bookmarks. Discover what’s new in Youth events, and what’s happening at Camp McLean and the Old Firehouse.
True to its purpose, MCC will also host the BeFit McLean Health Fair during the open house. Get free screenings and learn preventive care tips for a variety of health care concerns, live life happy and healthy!
The McLean Community Center has been an integral resource and gathering place for our community since 1970. The new renovations will help ensure MCC continues as the place to be for all things connected to community.
