Evanston companies wishing to participate in the construction of the new Robert Crown Community Center, ice complex, and library project are invited to attend a vendor fair at the Civic Center next month.

The fair is set for Tuesday, May 1, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the Parasol Room on the fourth floor of the Morton Civic Center at 2100 Ridge Ave.

Participants will learn about the project’s scope of work, anticipated trade opportunities, expected building materials, and the construction schedule.

The City and construction manager, Bulley & Andrews + BOWA Construction, strongly encourage all Evanston vendors and trade contractors interested in participating in this project to attend. 

The new facility will include two NHL regulation ice rinks, a gymnasium, a public library, multipurpose rooms, and a preschool. The site will include three artificial turf fields, serving a variety of sports, open green space, and a surface parking lot.

For more information and to RSVP, vendors are asked to email Peter Kuhn by April 24.
