Senior Center Project Moving Forward

A resolution related to the construction of a new senior center in Sturgeon Bay was approved by the Door County Board during its regular meeting Tuesday morning. Supervisors agreed the project should move forward to phase three now that goals and requirements have been established, preliminary design phase services completed and costs estimated. Venture Associates of Milwaukee has been working on a design for a 24-thousand square foot building to be constructed near the current senior center off 14th Avenue. The facility would have a kitchen, dining areas, offices, space for multi-use programming and rooms for physical activities. So far, the county has set aside one million dollars for the $6.4 million project, with two million dollars to be funded by donations, gifts and grants from the center’s friends group. In that regard, the resolution indicates that the project won’t move forward until the outside fundraising has reached the one million dollar mark on or before September first of this year. Besides the senior center, the new facility would also house offices for senior services such as the Aging and Disability Resource Center.
