Construction to Begin for Expansion and Renovation
Brooklyn Park, MD (September 26, 2018) - The Brooklyn Park Senior Activity Center will close its doors after business hours tomorrow, Thursday, September 27, 2018, to begin the construction of the expansion and renovation of the center.
The 2,000 square foot renovation will create 3 additional classroom activity spaces and convert the entrance into a welcoming reception area that prevents outdoor weather conditions from impacting the community room.
At a cost of $1,692,000, this project represents the first time since 2006 that senior activity centers have received funding through a stand-alone Capital Improvement Project.
The project was designed by Gannet Flemming, Inc. The construction contractor, Tech Contracting of Baltimore, will be working with Development Facilitators, Inc. for inspection services through a Department of Public Works contract. Construction is expected to be complete by July 30, 2019.
During construction, senior activity center members will be welcomed at the Pasadena and Pascal Senior Activity Centers. Additionally, members will be able to continue to enjoy a traditional Korean-American meal on Wednesdays at the Cedar-Morris Hill community center.
