By Betty Reid for The Arizona Republic

The Anthem Community Council Board of Directors want to put $1.2M over two years into the $2.3M civic center property they purchased at 3701 W. Anthem Way.

The preliminary estimates for renovation include structural changes, furniture and fixtures, and technology, audio and video, said Doug Greenstein, Anthem Community Council’s chief financial officer.
