Meadowview Community Center
General Rules, Regulations & Policy Information (updated Nov 2018)
Statement of Purpose
The Meadowview Community Center is designed as a service facility for the entire community regardless of race, creed, religion or national origin. In addition to the medical clinic, it is intended to provide a convenient place where persons of all ages can meet in a wholesome atmosphere to enjoy social gatherings, learning, plus entertaining and/or enlightening programs.
Meadowview First, Inc. is a steering committee comprised of local representatives who will administer the use of these facilities. We intend to maintain a clean and useful building of which everyone in the community can be proud. Toward that end we offer the following restrictions, which we ask everyone to respect and follow:
The following are NOT allowed inside the Meadowview Community Center:
Animals of any kind, except for service animals assisting someone with disabilities.
Alcoholic beverages, controlled substances or abuse of prescription or over-the-counter medications.
Clothing that is inappropriate to wear in public, including dress that might be too revealing or include offensive language or art. Shoes, shirts and, of course, pants, shorts, skirts or dresses must be worn for any and all events in the community center.
Profanity or otherwise offensive language, inappropriate behavior, carousing, horseplay, fighting, overtly sexual or otherwise indecent acts.

Graffiti or any form of marking or carving on facility walls, ceilings, furnishings or decorations.
Use of nails, tacks, staples, glue, tape or other means to attach balloons, streamers or posters to walls, ceilings or furnishings. The only exception would be the use of materials which would not damage the painted or wooden surface.
ANY act which defaces the property or potentially compromises the health and safety, causes harm, discomfort or insult to any patron or in any way lessens the ability of someone else to enjoy use of these facilities.
