Community Center

Community Center Rental

The Delaware Township Community Center is located at 9094 E 131st Street, directly behind the Government Center. The Community Center is a fully accessible facility with space suitable for your wedding reception, reunions, club or business meeting. The facility offers three different meeting rooms (Addison room, Kincaid room, and Eller room) or you may choose to rent the entire building. The community center also features a catering kitchen and a small room for brides to rest and get ready for an event. The large lobby may be reserved for “pre-function” activities as well.

Reservations for the facility are scheduled with the Trustee’s office. Inquiring organizations should authorize one individual to serve as the contact person for the group. This person will be responsible for scheduling the reservation and coordinating details with the township, including any arrangements for the building access and instructions for facility use. The contact person must be present at all times during the event and is responsible for assuring that the facility is left in its original condition. Reservations will be confirmed in writing by the township upon receipt of any applicable fees or deposit and a completed Indemnification/Release form.

Problems During Your Event?

The Delaware Township Community Center does NOT employ a full-time attendant; therefore, if you should encounter an emergency any time after office hours, please refer to the call list, located in the vestibule next to the phone.  We will respond to emergencies as quickly as possible.


  1. Clean up: All persons using the Township facilities are asked to keep the rooms in a neat and orderly condition and not affix items to the walls. Food and beverages are allowed, but they must be disposed of properly. All groups doing craftwork must first cover tables. Trash is to be emptied into the containers located outside the building on the West side of the Community Center. Failure to satisfy this obligation may prohibit future use of the facilities and loss of your deposit.
