Site Work: In June, the sitework continued with curb and gutter at the front entry plaza, grading and placement of the water quality structures at the south basin, the underground drainage at the main entrance plaza, and the entry plaza concrete was started. In addition the child watch and early learning playground structures were placed. In July the entry plaza will be complete (including the exterior public art piece) as well as the playground surfacing. Also, the site work on the east side of the building will continue, and at the end of July, it is anticipated that the demolition of the old Senior Center building will begin.
Community Side: In June, the majority of finishes were completed with only miscellaneous items remaining. In addition, the installation of the cubicles and miscellaneous furniture has started. For July, the anticipated work includes the completion of finishes, startups on all equipment, final cleaning, punchlists, and final inspections so that the Staff in the Senior Center can move into the first floor of the new building by the later part of the month. Due to complications with the details of the decorative woodwork for the main stair and control desk, the remaining finishes in the lobby and upstairs gallery areas will continue into August.
Recreational Side: In June, the gym flooring was completed, cabinetry and lockers were completed, the pool area tile work was started and is nearing completion. In July, the rest of the Recreation side will focus on the completion of the finishes in the fitness areas, and in the pools, plaster will start immediately followed by the filling of the pools.
The schedule for the new facility remains on schedule for final project completion in September; however, the early opening of the south half of the facility to relocate Senior Services staff in order to start demolition of the old Senior Center has been delayed to late-July.

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.
