The 203 Project
The 203 Project is again underway and is now the future home of the Town Recreation, Parks and Cultural Resources Program, the Orange County Southern Branch Library, the Orange County Skills Development Center, Virtual Justice Center, WCOM Radio, Teen Center, and more. The current design process is a continuation of the 2018 efforts, reflecting the great input previously received and framing the new and updated synergies of the building users. Please consider attending one of our upcoming events to learn more.

Recent Updates From Town Council
October 13, 2020 - Town Council Public Hearing (Includes Updated Design Concept!)
In 2016, the Town began actively exploring development of the existing parking lot at 203 S. Greensboro Street in response to a request from Orange County to locate the new Orange County Southern Branch Library there. After completing a study of Town facilities conditions and the need for future space, as well as hearing of other compatible users, interest in building new space for Town and related uses was identified.
What is The 203 Project?
This project will be the future home of the of the Town’s Recreation and Parks Department, the Orange County Southern Branch Library, WCOM Radio and much more! The 203 Project is a combined effort that will offer a community based facility that will provide opportunities for education, art, and togetherness. This building will be accessible to all individuals and will enhance the quality of life in our area.
