Planning for New Human Services Resource Center Continues

If a timetable floated at the meeting of the Door County Board Tuesday is followed, work on a Human Services Resource Center in Sturgeon Bay could be underway in a year’s time. The new facility is projected to be built at the site of the current Senior Center at 832 North 14th Avenue. In January, supervisors approved a series of phases expected to lead to the construction of the new facility. Phase one was set aside for the project concept including the scope of the project, budgetary needs and limitations and projected start and completion dates. The second phase included the retention of a design professional, preliminary design and cost estimates, project funding, an interim report to the county board and a resolution to the board related to project funding and authorization to proceed. County Board Chairman Dan Austad indicated Tuesday that phase three could be reached in September. That phase features the elements of design development, construction documents, competitive bidding, an interim report to the county board and a resolution awarding the contract and proceeding. The final phase includes construction, substantial completion, a permit to occupy and use, a punch list, final completion and a final report. It appears that a combination of appropriated funds and donations or grants will pay for the senior center project. Currently, the Aging and Disabled Resource Center is also housed in the Senior Center building.
