July 3, 2019 Update:

The Bay parking lot was opened on May 25th for the 2019 summer season. The landscaping and irrigation on the perimeter of the parking lot was complete the first week of July. The new parking lot configuration adds 26 additional stalls to the previous 190 stalls for a total of 216 parking spaces.

For the new Community Center, all that remains for the first phase of site work is the north trail connection across the east ditch crossing to the existing trail just north of Brunner Reservoir, sidewalk, landscaping, and irrigation work. The sidewalk connection is scheduled to reopen for public use in late July. The landscaping and irrigation is anticipated to occur in early fall when the weather will be more favorable for native seeding.

For the recreational side of the building, underground utilities are complete. The miscellaneous structural steel for the cold pool exterior overhang, the screen walls for the roof-top mechanical, and the elevated track steel framing in the gym are 95 percent complete. The roofing, structural slabs on grade, and masonry partition walls in the locker rooms are 90 percent complete. In July, the anticipated work includes the completion of the roofing, structural slabs on grade, masonry partitions, and the elevated track. In addition, overhead work in the gym and the pools, the north stairwell, and pool excavations will begin.

For the community side, masonry walls for the fire separation wall has begun and the elevator shafts masonry will follow. Underground utilities will be completing with slabs on grade to follow. Steel erection is scheduled to begin on July 15th and will continue into August.

The completion schedule for the new facility anticipates opening in phases with the south half of the facility, including administration offices, meeting rooms and Senior Services, opening in June of 2020 and the remaining facility, demolition of the existing Senior Center, and the remaining site work completing at the end of summer 2020.


Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) was awarded the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) agreement by Council on January 23, 2018, authorizing the contractor to begin the preconstruction services to include constructability reviews and cost estimating to keep the project within budget. Davis has completed the Schematic Design (SD) design stage and is moving into the Design Development (DD) stage. The Concept Review for the Site Development Plan amendment was approved by Council at the April 3, 2018 Council Study Session with several comments. At the May 29, 2018 Council Study Session, the project team presented the current design of the project which was 96,088 square feet and a total project cost of $47.2 million. Council agreed to move forward with Design Development phase for the fully programmed facility as presented. The Site Development Plan (SDP) amendment was brought to the Planning & Zoning Commission on August 13th. The SDP amendment and an amendment to the CM/GC agreement with AP to add the construction scope with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) was brought to Council and approved on August 28, 2018. The start of the first phase of construction is anticipated to be the beginning of September.

On July 11, 2017, Council approved a consultant design award to Davis Partnership PC Architects (Davis). Design investigation, research, and public input process have been completed. With the guidance provided by the Stakeholder Committee (composed of representatives from PRAC, HHSAC, and the Senior Resource Board) and the numerous public comments received, Council authorized Staff to proceed with design based upon the 2-story conceptual design at the December 12, 2017, Council Study Session.

On May 23, 2017, Council authorized staff to pursue debt financing for a new Community Center. The project will construct a new two-story facility and will be phased such that the north wing of the facility (recreational area) will be demolished to allow space on the site for the new facility to be constructed, and allow the south wing (senior services area) of the building to remain open during construction. This phased method will require that some programs move to the Paul Derda Recreation Center while others would be suspended while the new facility is being constructed.

At the end of August 2018, Staff and Citizens participated in "BCC Demo Day 2018" to say THANK YOU and GOODBYE to our beloved BCC.
