Improvements include renovation of first-floor restrooms, window and door replacement throughout the facility and a new HVAC system.
Monroe County Executive Adam Bello today announced the groundbreaking of several renovation projects at the Roger Robach Community Center at Ontario Beach Park. The improvements will include upgrades to the facility’s restrooms for ADA compliance, new windows and doors and a new HVAC system that will allow for air conditioning in the main community room.
The projects are funded in large part through New York State funds secured by Senator Jeremy Cooney and Assemblymember Sarah Clark.
“Each year, thousands of Monroe County residents and visitors enjoy weddings, picnics and parties hosted at The Roger Robach Community Center,” said County Executive Bello. “The long-awaited upgrades to the center will revitalize the entire area for future generations and make Ontario Beach Park a premier destination for large events and family fun. I thank Senator Cooney, Assemblymember Clark and Governor Hochul for their continued investment in Monroe County’s parks system.”
Upgrades to the Roger Robach Community Center at Ontario Beach Park, constructed in 1931, are part of Monroe County’s $7.2 Million investment in the parks system included in this year’s budget. Other improvements to Ontario Beach Park include a wheelchair access ramp installed on the beach in August, a future synthetic ice skating rink, spray park and ADA accessible playground.
“The Roger Robach Center has a historic presence on Lake Ontario’s waterfront and remains a center of community for Rochester families,” said Senator Jeremy Cooney. “I am proud to have delivered on my promise to the people of Charlotte by securing over half a million dollars in state funding to finally modernize and ensure the Robach Center will be enjoyed for generations to come. I’m grateful to Monroe County Executive Adam Bello for his partnership and support in this long-awaited project.”
“I'm proud to have been able to secure funding through the NYS Assembly to contribute towards the critically needed restoration and renovation projects we're breaking ground on here today,” said Assemblymember Sarah Clark. ”The Robach Community Center has long been a cherished gem to our local families, hosting countless community and milestone events over the years. This is what good government looks like; state and local leaders coming together to ensure progress on the things that matter most to our residents. Thank you to all those involved for bringing this exciting day to fruition."
