TIGARD — Gone are the parking lot and baseball field on Grant and Johnson streets here. In their place are trucks, cranes and the shell of the new building that will be St. Anthony Church’s new community center.

The community center will feature a commercial kitchen, cafeteria/assembly hall, stage, lobby/gathering space for small meetings and receptions, rest rooms, designated childcare area and a new parking lot.

An estimated $200,000 remains to be raised to pay for the $5.2 million project. Target date for completion is March 2014.
