The current Senior Center building and all City-owned buildings on the Golf Acres property will be demolished as part of the process to construct the new Senior Center. The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region, which operates the Senior Center, is finalizing a plan to provide services to its patrons at other locations until the new facility opens. Recognizing the disruption this project will have on Golf Acres tenant businesses and their customers, the City is providing relocation support to these tenants. Currently, the City does not plan to develop additional buildings on the Golf Acres property.
The Senior Center renovation is funded by $8 million from the American Rescue Plan Act. The new center will be approximately 23,000 square feet, up from the existing 17,100-square-foot location. The new site location was selected from four options all within the Golf Acres site and is based on feedback from current Senior Center patrons, service providers, community members, and other stakeholders. The new site will maximize the available space for parking, improve traffic flow and accessibility, and add more functional outdoor space.
Updated Site Plan
The design team with public input has selected the below site plan.
Thank you to those who participated in the online survey in March 2023 that asked for public input on a potential new name for the Senior Center. The project team is considering the feedback as it determines the name of the new building.
